Cold Metal Stairs with Su Croll
Three perspectives on dementia.
Join us at Camrose Public Library and hear three different stories about the journey and heartbreak of dementia.
Emerging from the expanse of bewildered mourning, Su Croll's third collection, Cold Metal Stairs, is a timely lament for those who wander deeper into the mists of failing memory, and for those who are left behind, waiting. With profound care, Croll breaks open the quiet conversations happening across the nation about dementia by bringing readers to her father's bedside to witness his final years, months, hours, and the days that follow. Tender and aching, Croll's verse confronts the imperfect, heart-rendering act of remembering the moments, and ghosts, that linger.
