Cathryn Jakobson Ramin will talk about 'Carved in Sand: When Attention Fails and Memory Fades in Midlife.' This lively investigation of mid-life memory erosion seamlessly weaves personal narrative and journalism, humor and empathy, everyday examples and scientific facts in a quest to find out what every boomer worries about: is it the fog of an aging brain or is something more serious going on? Anyone over the age of 40 is aware that memory loss can be unnerving, frustrating and sometimes terrifying.
