When professor Cindy Weinstein was studying to become a professor of literature, her father was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's disease at 58 years old. Finding the Right Words: A Story of Literature, Grief, and the Brain follows her decades-long journey to come to terms with her father's dementia and death as both a daughter and academic.

In collaboration with noted neurologist Dr. Bruce L. Miller, Weinstein combines personal memoir, literature, and the science and history of brain health into a unique, educational, and meditative work.

Go Behind the Book with Cindy Weinstein and Bruce Miller as they discuss Finding the Right Words. Caltech Professor Catherine Jurca leads the conversation, which will be followed by an audience Q&A.
