Gail Sheehy Named AARP's Ambassador of Caregiving
Date:10/27/2008

ing. She will draft her next book--about the journey of caregiving--on the AARP Web site, inviting her readers to comment, online, and amplify the stories of the caregivers they will see and hear. The book, to be published in 2009 by Harper Collins, will be the emotional and instructive outcome of countless interactions Ms. Sheehy will have with the online community.

"None of us is prepared for the role of caregiving and many of us find ourselves thrust into the role with nowhere to turn and a sense of helplessness and fear that only add to the stress," said Sheehy. "Through the power of the AARP community, I can share my own personal passage as a caregiver and that of the thousands of people I have met along the way with the many millions who feel alone and without direction. To be able to do this in real time on the Web and to then to incorporate the best of these "real time" stories in my book offers me a unique opportunity, and I am grateful to AARP for their vision and dedication to this issue touching so many Americans."

Described as America's "emotional tour guide," Ms. Sheehy has published 15 books and her 1976 book Passages was named by The Library of Congress as one of the ten most influential books of our time. Passages has been printed in 28 languages and remained on The New York Times Bestseller list for more than three years. In 2006, Random House rereleased Passages in celebration of the 30th Anniversary of its first printing. Other best sellers include The Silent Passage, New Passages, and Hillary's Choice.

She is also a contributing editor to Vanity Fair and to Parade since 1984. Her articles have won her numerous journalistic awards.
