Elizabeth Tierney’s talk on Sunday, October 1, at the Lenox Library Distinguished Lecture Series received these comments:
Your talk yesterday for the Lecture Series was spellbinding. You could have heard a pin drop. You had the audience in the palm of your hand. Thank you so much for sharing your pain, your story, your amazing journey, which you have been generous enough to allow the rest of us to witness and experience. (Jeremy Yudkin, host and organiser of the Series)
Elizabeth, you were wonderfully fabulous. (Billy Soto)
Elizabeth, you were absolutely magnificent last night. I am retracing the book, and it is truly splendid. (Victoria Williams)
Thanks, Elizabeth, the talk certainly got a lot of people talking afterward. (Sharon Hawkes, Lenox Library Association)
You were really awesome … made me want to be in your class room … You are an amazing teacher: funny, engaging, thoughtful, etc, etc. That is definitely your calling, so keep it up! (Mary Jo Piretti)
You are a “Distinguished Lecturer”! Great job … so glad we were there. (Meryl Rudin)
This is a must read book of one woman’s journey as her husbands’ caretaker through dementia, medical challenges and things rarely talked about. This is a heart-wrenching story with challenges that many of us may find ourselves navigating with our own parents, spouses, or loved ones whether with dementia or any number of chronic diseases requiring long-term care. Elizabeth provides valuable insights for us all and especially for any medical or healthcare provider. Elizabeth’s writing style had me laughing and crying throughout!
