September 25th

After doing a little research and taking a trip to the library, here is my current project-inspired reading list:

1) Wilfred Gordon McDonald Partridge by Mem Fox
2) I Could Tell You Stories: Sojourns in the Land of Memory by Patricia Hampl
3) Aging with Grace: The Nun Study by David Snowden
4) The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat by Oliver Sacks
5) Art and the Performance of Memory edited by Richard Candida-Smith
6) Making Memory Matter by Lisa Saltzman
7) Open 7: (No) Memory

I also researched places in the area to contact for volunteers:

1) Ann Arbor Senior Center
2) Ypsilanti Senior Center
(the rest are either retirement or assisted-living communities)
3) American House
4) Brookhaven Manor
5) Glacier Hills
6) Hillside Terrace
7) Lexington Club
8) Lurie Terrace
9) Sanctuary at St. Joe's
10) University Commons
11) University Senior Living

I decided to stay away from anything related to the U-M Health System and also pick places that seemed like they would have central offices or notice boards - this way I can provide a form-type letter that explains my project and ask for those interested in participating to contact me.
