After that book was published, she visited grade schools with a handmade Eskimo doll and encouraged students to keep reading and writing--and offered "polar bear" hugs along with her autograph.

"Pretty good story; sex scenes weren't necessary to the story though."
Down the Memory Hole by Bonnie Turner
"Maybe a bit predictable, but it deals with the idea of coming-of-age against a backdrop of Alzheimers very well. It is a fast read."
Down the Memory Hole by Bonnie Turner
"Buzz isn't happy because his grandfather is being moved into his bedroom to share it. His grandfather has Alzheimer's and thinks that Buzz is his dead brother Barclay.

I liked the story. It was short and easy to read. "

“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
Calvin Coolidge

“Anyone can be a barbarian; it requires a terrible effort to remain a civilized man.”

And all must follow in my wake.”
