This blog will be a place to post poetry written by people living with Alzheimer's disease. We will focus on poetry that is created as part of the Alzheimer's Poetry Project. We will post information and news about dementia. We hope this blog is of use to the family members who have a loved one with dementia.

J.W. Marshall

I love Esther Altshul Helfgott's blog "Witnessing Alzheimer's: A Caregiver's View. Today she has a wonderful piece on J.W. Marshall's poetry. Marshall and Christine Deavel co-own Open Books: A Poem Emporium in Seattle. One of the best poetry bookstores in the U.S. Hosting all those readings must of worn off on him because the book is excellent.

  1. Gary,

    Thank you for mentioning my blog and the Marshall piece, and thanks for the work you do in our community,


  2. I was so happy to read your piece on J.W. It has been years but they were kind to host me for a reading. When I had my small poetry distribution company "Words on Wheels," Open Books: was one of my biggest customers! Back then a CD box set called "A Century of Recorded Poetry," was a smash hit.
