April Book

April 25  Like Falling through a Cloud by Eugenia Zukerman
Leader - Shirley Solberg


Nonfiction. This month we have a change of pace, a short, poetic read from the point of view of a very articulate woman challenged by concerns about mental changes. This “lyrical memoir” of a personal struggle with memory loss and aging is a unique, surprisingly upbeat, and engaging fast read by a flutist and poet.
