Berwick Literary Festival 2017

Berwick Literary Festival: Tony Husband: Take Care, Son (The Story of My Dad and his Dementia)

Berwick Literary Festival 2017

England's most northerly town will once again be playing host to a four-day celebration of books and authors. Dozens of talks, workshops and other events will be staged between October 19th and 22nd at venues all over Berwick. There's something for everyone, from children to adult readers, from budding writers to history buffs. The festival promises to be every bit as entertaining as in 2015 & 2016.

This touching illustrated story recounts how dementia slowly took Ron Husband away from his family. The title is a reference to Ron’s last words to his son, Tony. The book is framed as a chat between Tony and his dad, who fades away through the last few pages.

"rather wonderful cartoon strips ... chronicling his father's dementia with loving charm and wit" -Stephen Fry.
