The Kensington Redondo Beach is thrilled to partner once again with AlzAuthors to bring you a thoughtfully curated September Book Club Meet & Greet.

Join us at our community for an inspirational roundtable book discussion with four compassionate authors: Sherri Snelling, Gerontologist & Author of Me Time Monday; Ruth Stevens, Author of Stage Seven; Tsgoyna Tanzman, Speech Language Pathologist & Author of Hope After Stroke; and Cindy Weinstein, Professor & Author of Finding the Right Words.

Listen in as they guide you through selected excerpts from their featured works, and ask your top caregiver questions in a welcoming, intimate setting. You will not only benefit from their wide-ranging wisdom and experience, but also connect with other family caregivers who are on similar journeys! While you’re here, enjoy a delicious autumn spread of sweet and savory hors d’oeuvres made with love by our talented dining team.

Following our Book Club, tour our loving community and experience Our Promise to love and care for your family as we do our own. As specialists in all aspects of Assisted Living and Memory Care, we offer services and programs that are thoughtfully designed, clinically comprehensive and highly personalized. We’re standing by, eager to listen and ready to help.

Sherri Snelling is a Corporate Gerontologist, an “Authorpreneur” who has written Me Time Monday: The Weekly Wellness Plan to Find Balance and Joy for a Busy Life, and Founder/CEO of Caregiving Club, a strategic consulting and educational content creation firm with an expertise in caregiver wellness, well home design and brain health/Alzheimer’s. She is also host of the podcast “Caregiving Club On Air.” Snelling writes articles, appears on TV and radio and has served on aging and caregiving advisory committees for the White House, the CDC, CMS, Alzheimer’s Association, the National Institute on Aging and Georgetown University. Snelling has a master’s degree in gerontology from USC Leonard Davis School of Gerontology and a master’s certification from MIT Sloan School of Management.

Ruth Stevens, Author of Stage Seven, believes in stories that make you laugh and cry. She says, “I like to write about the topics that worry me the most. Since I worry about a great many things, there is never a shortage of material.” A resident of Torrance, California, Ruth is a former public relations professional (in New York and Los Angeles) and proud member of the Dramatists Guild of America, Women’s Fiction Writers Association, and AlzAuthors. Ruth has been writing professionally for her entire career—including hundreds of articles for magazines, newspapers, and journals—but creative writing is her passion. She took up this endeavor full-time after quitting her day job in 2017. At last count, she’s written two plays and three novels.

Tsgoyna Tanzman, Speech-Language Pathologist, Life Coach & Author of Hope After Stroke for Caregivers and Survivors: The Holistic Guide to Getting Your Life Back, has helped thousands of people transition after stroke and brain injury to the next stages of their lives. Tsgoyna’s unique therapeutic approach combines traditional and holistic speech therapy along with the life coaching practices used by some of the most successful people on the planet. Tsgoyna’s humor and poignant life stories appear in 15 different anthologies of Chicken Soup for the Soul.

She is currently the Eli and Edythe Broad Professor of English, and has been at the California Institute of Technology since 1989, during which time she has published three monographs on American literature, edited several volumes, and taught classes on Herman Melville, Edgar Allan Poe, Women’s Fiction, and African-American literature. In 2018-19, she was an Atlantic Fellow in the Global Brain Health Institute based at UCSF and Trinity College Dublin, where she studied neurology with an interdisciplinary group of scientists, artists, social scientists, and physicians.
