Random House of Canada has announced it will be releasing, “Feeding My Mother: Comfort and Laughter in the Kitchen as My Mom Lives with Memory Loss”, a new memoir by Jann Arden, for publication in November 2017. Based on her hugely popular Facebook and Instagram posts, the book is a frank, funny, inspirational and piercingly honest account of the transformation in Jann’s life that has turned her into the primary “parent” to her mom, who is in the grip of Alzheimer’s.
The book will also include personal photos and family recipes, which Jann developed in her own kitchen to share with her mom.
“I started writing about my journey with my parents several years ago and was completely taken aback by the thousands of comments from people going through the same thing. I hope this brings some joy and comfort to those looking after parents who struggle to remember”.
