“Traveling Our Road”: An author visit with Dylan Weiss
November 9, 2022 @ 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Author Dylan Weiss (aka Gail Neustadt) shares and discusses her new book Traveling Our Road, which gently explores issues of illness, caregiving, communication, and love. Join us for an evening of storytelling, light bites, and book signings and sales.
Traveling Our Road is a complex story simplified for children of all ages. The “Road” becomes a central character shared by Dylan and DJ, both of whom are faced with tragic circumstances – DJ’s early onset Alzheimer’s disease, and Dylan’s role as a caregiver. Sustained by love and commitment, the author explains some of the challenges they face along their Road and the illustrator makes the story jump off its pages into your heart.
Replete with verbal and visual symbolism, the story invites children to consider how they might communicate with impaired loved ones.
