    One thought on “A Rewording Life

    1. Jeanne Bannon

      I am honoured to be a contributor to this amazing project/cause. Sheryl Gordon, the force behind it all, is a genius! She's incredibly creative and has found a wonderful way to bring awareness to a disease that affects way too many of us. I don't think there's a person out there who has never known someone who has or is currently battling dementia. Well done, Ms. Gordon.

    2. Danielle Vuong

      Amazing book! I was fascinated by the concept of getting over 1000 cool Canadians to come up with sentences for words we often forget, but the essays in this book really make it. Gordon's essays are intensely personal and an excellent read. To top it off, she is raising awareness and money to go towards treating Alzheimer's. This is a book all Canadians should have on their bookshelves (and anyone who wants to expand their vocabulary).

      A beautiful collection of poignant essays by Sheryl Gordon, reflecting on her mother's cognitive decline as she succumbs to Alzheimer's disease. A great coffee table book that includes sections of words and their definitions rescued from obscurity. Read the essays and then turn to a page at random to learn a new word and its meaning. Part of the proceeds donated to the Alzheimer's society.

    4. Heather Babcock

      A fresh and unique take on the thesaurus! Some of the definitions read like beautiful poetry while others will bring a smile to your face. The perfect gift for the word lover on your list! Plus 50% of the profits go to the Alzheimer Society. Highly recommend.
