Steph Booth

Married to Alzheimer's: A Life Less Ordinary with Tony Booth

6.00pm to 7.00pm

Fowey Town Hall, £10

Journalist, author and wife of Tony Booth, the English actor best known for his role in Till Death Us Do Part, and as the father-in-law of the former Prime Minister, Tony Blair; Steph Booth talks about her recently published memoir. Borne out of her much-loved Irish Times column, which she started writing as a way to cope with the shattering news of Tony’s diagnosis, Married to Alzheimer’s delves into the hardships of caring for Tony and how it altered their lives forever. She captures the people they once were and the dynamics of their extraordinary relationship with lightness, heart and humour. Dementia and Alzheimer’s is currently the leading cause of death in England and Wales, and Steph’s newspaper column, and now her memoir, aims to provide comfort and much-needed support to others. Steph will be in conversation with Daphne Skinnard, Deputy Editor, BBC Radio Cornwall.
