Guest: Kyle Herges, Assistant Communications Professor at Dakota Wesleyan University and Author of “The Memory Thief”  Alzheimer’s is a cruel and confusing illness. There’s no prevention, no cure and no way to slow its course. Families watch the essence of their loved ones slip away.  After his mother was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s, Kyle Herges was looking for a way to explain the disease to his children. He was also trying to cope. Both efforts came together in his children’s book called “The Memory Thief.”
