In today’s episode of Willful, author Sheryl Gordon talks about:
• Asking novelist Jane Urquhart to contribute to A Rewording Life, and getting a yes! Followed by 999 more yeses
• Writing one book and considering the next
• Her evolving definition of success
Sheryl Gordon is the author of A Rewording Life - ARL, for which she wrote eight heartfelt essays on dementia before asking 1000 Canadian contributors to pen sentences using a bemusing and obscure word she provided them. Through her curatorial work, Sheryl hopes to harness the power of words to help eradicate dementia.
*50% of the profits for Sheryl’s book sales will go to the Alzheimer Society (alzheimer.ca)
