Caring for Red book talk and discussion at Bluestockings in NYC!
Caring for Red: A Daughter’s Memoir is Mindy Fried’s moving and colorful account about caring for her 97-year-old father, Manny – actor, writer, labor organizer, and survivor of political persecution during the McCarthy Era – in the final year of his life.
A deeply moving account of the rewards and challenges that emerge as an adult child becomes the caregiver for a beloved and formerly fiercely independent parent. The practical lessons Fried learned will be especially helpful to the millions of Americans facing this transformation in the future. – Stephanie Coontz, author of The Way We Never Were: American Families and the Nostalgia Trap
