Derry Author Fest

Derry Author Fest is a day of writing workshops, panels and networking for aspiring authors, dreamers and dabblers alike. We bring in reputable authors to teach in areas of their expertise. As an attendee, you can stay all day, half day, or just drop in for a session. Book sales and signings are interspersed in between our workshops so you will have time to buy books, support a local indie and  get some face time with our teachers.

Bessie's Story: Watching the lights go out.

Bessie's Story - Watching the Lights Go Out is an inspiring story about a charming, brave, chocolate Lab who gradually loses her eyesight. The author leads the reader from the unexpected diagnosis of terminal blindness for his beloved four-year-old pet through the two-and-a-half year transition to sightlessness. In the process, Bessie unwittingly becomes an expert mentor and teacher for the high-wire act of growing older with grace and optimism.

Alzheimer's and Effective Communications Strategies

Communication is more than just talking and listening – it’s also about sending and receiving messages through attitude, tone of voice, facial expressions and body language. As people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias progress in their journey and the ability to use words is lost, families need new ways to connect. Join us to explore how communication takes place when someone has Alzheimer’s, learn to decode the verbal and behavioral messages delivered by someone with dementia, and identify strategies to help you connect and communicate at each stage of the disease.
