Kay Anderson Gay will be at the Fayetteville Town Center on the Fayetteville Square to sign books on SATURDAY, February 23, 2019 from 4:30—6:30 p.m.
Ten years ago, Kay received shattering news: she had Parkinson’s Disease. How she learned to deal with the diagnosis and the changes it brought to her life is the subject of her book, Parkinson’s: The Roller Coaster I Live On.
Anyone who has been diagnosed with PD or has a friend or family member who has will want to read this account of how one woman learned to live with a condition that takes over one’s body and changes relationships at home and at work.
Kay approaches this serious subject with a wry humor that keeps the book from being a downer. She chronicles her efforts first to accept the reality of her diagnosis and then, by trial and error, to find ways to maintain a quality of life in spite of the disease.
The book will appeal to a wide audience, not just to sufferers of PD and their families and co-workers, but also to anyone interested in the way a progressive disease sends out ripples, like a rock thrown into water, that affect not just the individual, but families, businesses, and the community at large.
Parkinson’s: The Roller Coaster I Live On is available in print and digital editions. Copies will be available for purchase at the book-signing on Saturday, February 23.
