50p in aid of Alzheimer's Society

Calisi Press to donate 50p for every copy sold of My Mother Is a River 

When I came across My Mother Is a River for the first time, I loved its simple yet powerful story. I could identify with the sometime difficult relationship between a mother and daughter, but also could recognise, from personal experience, the difficulty and frustration of dealing with the devastating disease that dementia is. Although I have been personally spared the daily agony of caring for a loved one, my extended family has twice experienced this. Talking to people about this book, I have become aware of how many people are affected every day, in one way or another, by this disease. 

For this reason I have decided that Calisi Press will donate 50p for every copy of My Mother Is a River sold through this website. The generous help of the companies listed below will also allow me to donate 50p for copies sold through bookshops, for a time at least, something that a small company like Calisi Press would not otherwise be able to do. Please visit their websites and support them if you can. 

In addition, as September 2015 will mark the fourth global World Alzheimer's MonthTM, an international campaign to raise awareness and challenge stigma, we will donate an additional 50p on all pre-orders placed during this month.
