The Historical Society of Washington, D.C., in partnership with the Newseum, presents the panel discussion, “The Wide Circumference of Love and D.C.’s History with Alzheimer’s,” on Saturday, October 21, 1:00 – 2:30 pm at the Newseum’s Documentary Theater.
Focused on compelling characters struggling with Alzheimer’s disease, Golden’s novel raises larger issues of the disproportionate impact of Alzheimer’s among African Americans. The panel brings together acclaimed Washington novelist Marita Golden, author of The Wide Circumference of Love; Washington Post Magazine editor Marcia Davis; Stephanie Monroe, director of Us Against Alzheimer’s; and Gary Williams, whose family was featured in Golden’s Washington Post Magazine feature, “A Quiet Desperation.” The panel will be moderated by Izetta Autumn Mobley, Public Programs and Outreach Coordinator for the Historical Society.
The event will conclude with a book signing by the author.
