BROADCASTER and author, Sally Magnusson, was at The Avenue Shopping Centre in Newton Mearns recently to discuss ‘Where Memories Go’, her latest book, in an event organised by Waterstone’s which proved to be a sell-out, with some 150 people attending the free event.
An inspiring memoir of a family’s love for a mother – and a searing manifesto for social change – ‘Where Memories Go’ tells how Magnusson cared with her two sisters for her mother, Mamie, during her long struggle with dementia, until her death in 2012.
Michelle McCabe, centre manager at The Avenue, said: “Sally Magnusson’s moving and honest account of losing a loved one day by day to an insidious disease is both deeply personal and a challenging call to arms.
“As Sally said, dementia is one of the greatest social, medical, economic, scientific, philosophical and moral challenges of our times. Certainly, it proved to be a subject of great interest to the many people who snapped up tickets to hear Sally talk about her own experiences.”
The Avenue Shopping Centre, managed by commercial property consultancy BTWShiells, offers shoppers a warm and welcoming shopping experience conveniently located on the outskirts of Glasgow city centre.
