LILRC Webinar: The End of Her – Racing Against Alzheimer’s to Solve a Murder with Author Wayne Hoffman
September 21, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Join LILRC to hear author and journalist Wayne Hoffman speak on his recent memoir, The End of Her: Racing Against Alzheimers to Solve A Murder (Heliotrope Books, 2022).
The End of Her, Hoffman’s nonfiction debut, is a true crime memoir about his efforts to uncover the facts about his great-grandmother’s murder, while watching his own mother’s decline from dementia. One reviewer called the book “a murder mystery wrapped like a delicious knish around a familial love story,” while a historian praised it as “meticulously researched and skillfully written.” Publishers Weekly gave it a starred review, calling it “riveting” and “a unique addition to the cold case subgenre, and a powerful mix of true crime and family memoir.”
