  4. Alzheimer's and Dementia Series: Effective Communication Strategies

    June 28, 2022, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
    @
    Meeting Room

    Communication is more than just talking and listening – it’s also about sending and receiving messages through attitude, tone of voice, facial expressions, and body language. As people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias progress in their journey and the ability to use words is lost, families need new ways to connect. Join us to explore how communication takes place when someone has Alzheimer’s; learn to decode the verbal and behavioral messages delivered by someone with dementia; and identify strategies to help you connect and communicate at each stage of the disease.

    This program will be presented in-person at the Library. Contact Kelsey Williams at kewilliams@alz.org or 615-622-4182 with any questions. If you are unable to attend in-person, contact Kelsey for other options.

  5. True Crime Book Club

    June 28, 2022, 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

    Join the newest book club at WCPLS - for True Crime Enthusiasts. The meetings are held at the Main branch of the Williamson County Library in the Learning Center on the second floor. We will meet at 6 pm on the LAST Tuesday of the month. In our next meeting we will discuss Before and After: The Incredible Real-Life Stories of Orphans Who Survived the Tennessee Children's Home Society by Judy Christie and Lisa Wingate. This book tells of the real crimes that inspired Wingate's bestseller Before We Were Yours, describing the black-market baby business at the Tennessee Children’s Home Society in Memphis. Georgia Tann offered up more than 5,000 orphans tailored to the wish lists of eager parents, willing to pay. Tann ran a criminal enterprise selling children stolen from the poor and the desperate; and was not above lying to new mothers, telling them their babies had died. It was an elaborate scheme that tore families apart; impacting households for generations.
