Local author publishes memoir about mother’s Alzheimer’s
Judith Harway is a professor of writing at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design (MIAD). She has authored three books of poetry and recently wrote a memoir called “Sundown: A Daughter’s Memoir of Alzheimer’s Care” that was published by Branden Books.
The 244-page book documents Harway’s personal experience with her mother’s struggle with Alzheimer’s and makes wider commentary on the market-driven American health care system.
Harway will discuss and sign copies of her book on Tuesday, Jan. 13 at 7 p.m. at Boswell Book Company.
OnMilwaukee.com recently talked with Harway about grief, parenting your parents, health care and how to nurture a sense of humor in the midst of heartbreak.
