Meet Lisa Genova for a Virtual Coffee
Join me for a virtual coffee!
You may know me from my books Still Alice, Left Neglected, Love Anthony, and Inside the O'Briens, Every Note Played, and Remember... now I'd love to get to know you in a small-group, interactive format.
This will be an open Q&A and discussion. We can talk about Alzheimer’s, memory, brain health, writing process or anything you want. Capping the guest list at 10 people makes it intimate enough that everyone has the chance to ask questions and participate.
Proceeds will benefit the Women's Alzheimer's Movement.
PM (EDT) —
What are people saying?
"A NOVEL EXPERIENCE"
This is a novel experience. I’m an absolute amateur in the subject, but have learned loads since the meetups. Access to a leading expert with the ability to ask questions - that can’t compare to any book or video.
- Martina G.
"Spark of curiosity"
The infectious enthusiasm, relatability, cool mannerisms... they are the teacher all of us wish we'd had. The magic is igniting the spark of curiosity and then the desire to learn just oozes out of people.
- Lisa S.
"BEST READING EXPERIENCE"
This was definitely the best book reading experience I’ve had. Having the option to ask questions made it all clearer, more fascinating, and fun. It is a great way to learn something when you have a mission.
- Emily B.
"HOW THINKERS THINK"
The Q&A format is exciting. I like that it showcases how thinkers think rather than just tell us what they think. I was able to have some back-and-forth around the ideas which is where the real value is.
- Michael C.
