AlzAuthors is a non-profit organization that promotes books written by people with dementia or their caretakers. It was started in 2015 by authors Marianne Sciucco, Jean Lee, and Vicki Tapia, each of them having taken care of parents with dementia and written a book about it. In time three more authors joined them and together they promoting the books of other writers who have had close encounters with dementia. They have created a website where they, by now, have introduced over 200 books about dementia and their authors. They also give links to blog posts by different writers about Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
