Article Discussion: The Ones We Sent Away

Tuesday, February 13, 2024
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Business and Community Center

Library staff facilitate a discussion of a thought-provoking article.

“It is remarkable how many Americans have relations who were, at some point in the past century, sequestered from public view.”

In "The Ones We Sent Away," her very personal cover story for the September 2023 Atlantic, Pulitzer Prize- and National Book Award-winning essayist Jennifer Senior reflects on the horrors of institutionalization, changing attitudes toward disability, the act of caregiving, and the many ways people can continue to grow and change into old age.
