Christine’s Books

Lisa Genova’s Book – Still Alice

In around 2002, Christine was in frequent contact with the Harvard PhD neuroscientist Lisa Genova, when she was writing her first book “Still Alice”. This amazing fictional story describes how a 50 year old Harvard professor who has 3 grown up children is diagnosed with young onset Alzheimer’s. It draws on Lisa’s insights through communicating with people living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, as well as uniquely her own professional expertise in neurology. Lisa and Christine met in May 2011 in Brisbane, and had a wonderful few hours together. Visit Lisa Genova’s website.

Still Alice has been since made into a movie called “Still Alice” starring Julianne Moore, Kristen Stewart, Alex Baldwin, Kate Bosworth & Hunter Parrish. Click here to read more.
