Hilarity For Charity (HFC) Summer Book Series

Founded in 2012 by Seth Rogen and Lauren Miller Rogen, HFC is a national non-profit organisation whose mission is to care for families impacted by Alzheimer’s disease, inspire the next generation of Alzheimer’s advocates, and be leaders in brain health research and education. See their website for further information about the charity: HFC | Bringing Light to Alzheimer’s (

It's really exciting that Peter has been asked to appear as one of the guests in this book series. For details of how to book a slot for Peter's talk, or indeed, Daniel's or Loretta's, see details below.

AlzAuthors is once again working with HFC to present a Summer Book Series for Alzheimer’s and dementia families and caregivers. This program is open to anyone interested in learning about these conditions. There is no cost. All participants must pre-register to reserve their spot and receive the Zoom link to the event.

Each month one of our authors will meet with readers and caregivers online to discuss their book. The authors will talk about their own dementia journeys and why they chose to write about them. They’ll be available to answer questions. This is a wonderful way to learn more about dementia and caregiving.

There is no need to read the book prior to the discussion, although this may be beneficial.

Meet Our Summer Series Authors

Session #1 with Author Peter Berry

Join our discussion with Peter Berry and Deb Bunt, authors of Slow Puncture: a Memoir About Living Well with Early Onset Alzheimer’s. “If my story helps just one person, then it’s a story I am happy to share.”

Session #2 with Dr. Daniel Potts

Join our discussion with Dr. Daniel Potts, author of A Pocket Guide for the Alzheimer's Caregiver as well as several volumes of poetry. "As strange as it may seem, caregiving skills were not taught in medical school. Thorough knowledge of the pathology and clinical manifestations of Alzheimer’s was not helping in the day-to-day challenges being faced mainly by my mother, Dad’s primary caregiver. I felt I didn’t know enough to help."

Session #3 with Author Loretta Woodward Veney

Join our discussion with Loretta Woodward Veney, author of Being My Mom's Mom: A Journey Through Dementia from a Daughter's Perspective. "I hope readers can take the hope, humor and strategies we’ve successfully used to help them along their journey."

My husband first experienced confusion and loss of memory in March of 2000 while undergoing rehab for alcoholism. Being home seemed to help him until 2006 when he gradually began experiencing Alzheimer’s symptoms. He had four to five hours a day where he wants to get a "greyhound" to "go home." Also, he thinks I am his sister and believes he has rented a car (he hasn't driven in five to 10 years). His personal hygiene was in the tank — it was necessary for him to change two to three times a day. Without long-term insurance for his care, it was becoming stressful to care from him. this year our family doctor introduced and started him on Healthherbsclinic Alzheimer’…
