Piecing Together Memories
Memory loss is something we all face as we age. In a special series, Piecing Together Memories, VPR is airing five interviews with elder Vermonters about some of their fondest recollections and about the memories they've begun to lose.
These interviews were recorded by StoryCorps, a national nonprofit dedicated to recording and collecting stories of everyday people. Excerpts were selected and produced by VPR.
They are included in an exhibit at the Shelburne Museum this summer called Alzheimer's: Forgetting Piece by Piece. The exhibit includes the interviews, photos and quilts made by people who have dealt with Alzheimer's Disease.
