"Nothing I do is really about me; it's all about making sure no one ends up like me," writes Emmy-award winning broadcast journalist Meryl Comer in her New York Times Bestseller, “Slow Dancing with a Stranger”.

Our August Pick of the Month, “Slow Dancing with a Stranger” is a profoundly personal, unflinching account of Meryl’s husband Harvey Gralnick's life with younger onset Alzheimer's disease. Harvey, a noted physician, researcher and former Chief of Hematology/Oncology at the National Institute of Health, lived with Alzheimer’s disease for more than 24 years.
