Bring your friends and come for an evening of food, wine and conversation with bestselling author Lisa Genova. She'll be talking about her latest book, Every Note Played.

If you've ever had the pleasure of reading one of Lisa Genova's bestselling novels, you know what to expect in her new book: bold, unflinching honesty; emotional, intimate writing; and relatable characters.

Just as her first book Still Alice brought the reality of Alzheimer's to life, Every Note Played gives the reader a vivid and authentic depiction of ALS. As Lisa has so skillfully shown in her previous books, she blends her neuroscience background with her literary skills to create a powerful story not simply about a neurological condition, but also about the human condition. Through the lens of ALS, Every Note Played explores regret, forgiveness, letting go, and redemption.

In 2015, Lisa was named one of the U.S. Top 50 Influencers in Aging. She received The Pell Center Prize for Story in the Public Square in recognition of “a contemporary storyteller whose work has had a significant impact on the public dialogue,” The Alzheimer's Association's Rita Hayworth Award, and many others. She was a senior advisor to the Alzheimer’s XPRIZE Team which won at the 2017 Visioneers Summit, and she sits on the governing board of Compassionate Care ALS.

Lisa has appeared on Dr. Oz, The TODAY show, PBS NewsHour, and NPR. Her TED Talk "What You Can Do to Prevent Alzheimer's," has been viewed more than two million times.

Tickets are $15 and include a wine and dessert reception.

Proceeds to benefit the Library.

Reception at 6:30 p.m. Program at 7 p.m.
