    Book Signing and Reading

    5:30 - 7:30 p.m.Women Writing for (a) Change, 6906 Plainfield Road.

    Annette Januzzi Wick calls I’ll Have Some of Yours her how-not-to caregiving book.

    In her a collection of essays, she shares the mistakes made along the way while trying finding the perfect care home for her mother, who is slipping further into dementia.

    The task isn’t simple. Her father dies in the midst of her parents’ transition to Cincinnati. And her mother presents some challenges—like hitting another resident, yelling at an Elvis impersonator, berating her daughter for the thingy’s in her hair.

    Still, Annette shows up because her mother has always done so. Her mother had made herself available despite a cancer diagnosis, or she had baked cookies and personally wrapped and transported them across the miles.

    In the past, Annette liked to think she was different from her mother. But in the present moment, she wondered, can she and her mother love without memory—or regret?

    I’ll Have Some of Yours is for anyone who longs to move past being a caregiver to find a deeply human and humane connection with someone you love.

    ** Available NOW through Amazon and major distributors.**

    ** A portion of the evening’s proceeds will be donated to Women Writing for (a) Change to fund young women’s programs.

LATEST TWEETS

Thank you, @margyartgrrl & others for speaking out. Interactions with FC sales reps for season tix always refer to "the west end of Over-the-Rhine" yet @fccincinnati intentionally disengages from working with the OTR community.

There's so many to thank! Those who wrote, called, advocated, stomped their feet to be heard. It's been tiresome and the mayor's schtick is old. He's out of date, out of touch, and someday soon, out of time.
