Dave Iverson In Person

Dave Iverson is an Oakland writer, documentary film producer/director, and retired broadcast journalist who has produced and reported more than 20 documentary specials for PBS. He will be at Mrs. Dalloway's on Thursday evening, May 19, to discuss his moving new memoir, Winter Stars: An Elderly Mother, an Aging Son, and Life's Final Journey.

The book chronicles Dave's remarkable decade-long caregiving odyssey that began when, at age 59 and having been recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s, he moved in with his 95-year-old mother to care for her. It’s a book Michael J. Fox calls “a modern classic … documenting the uncertain journey into the country of caregiving and the deeply sustaining bonds of familial love.”
