Join author Susan Rava from 10 a.m. to noon at Tatnuck Bookseller, 18 Lyman St., Westborough, as she discusses and signs her new book, “Swimming Solo.” One sunny morning at a family beach cottage, Susan Rava discovers that her father-in-law has set out to swim solo across Lake Michigan-the first hint that he might be slipping into dementia. Within six months, he is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. When, four years later, Rava’s father shows her a note with her mother’s name scribbled on it-”So I don’t forget,” he explains-she realizes her voyage into the uncharted waters of caring for loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease has just begun as it sequentially overtakes her husband’s parents and her own. Starting with that fateful day at the Lake Michigan shore, Rava shares the journey she and her husband completed 14 years later with the death of her mother. All are welcome to attend.
