instructor is complicated by his personal life. His marriage is strained, and he fears he may be developing symptoms of dementia. How will he cope with these challenges? And how will they transform him?

Join us at the Deanwood Neighborhood Library on Saturday, May 10, at 2 p.m. for an author talk with the locally-based Dr. Mann, who will read from Forgetful and discuss its themes and local setting, as well as the process of writing and publishing the novel and the role his own professional experiences as an organization development practitioner and Federal Executive Institute adjunct faculty member play in his work. 

Copies of the novel will be available for check out, purchase and signing.
