Zoom event: Liz O’Donnell, author of Working Daughter

We are pleased to welcome Liz O’Donnell, author of Working Daughter: A Guide to Caring for Your Aging Parents While Earning a Living, on Wednesday evening, September 16th, at 7 p.m. at the Falmouth Public Library. Liz will share her own experiences, both darkly humorous and heart-breaking, and pass on her lessons learned. Rescheduled from spring, and even more timely now!

Working Daughter is a revealing look at adults caring for their aging parents, and how these unpaid family caregivers are trying to manage eldercare along with raising their children, maintaining relationships, and pursuing their careers. It shares Liz’s story- she was enjoying a fast-paced career in marketing and raising two children when both of her parents were diagnosed with terminal illnesses on the same day. The book will be available for sale by Eight Cousins, online or in the store.

Liz is the founder of Working Daughter, a community for women balancing eldercare, career, and more. An award-winning writer, Working Daughter is her second book, which Library Journal named one of the Best Books of 2019.

A former family caregiver, she is a recognized expert on working while caregiving and has written on the topic for many outlets including The Atlantic, Forbes, TIME, WBUR and PBS’ Next Avenue and has delivered keynotes on the topic to many audiences including Harvard University, MIT, the Marketing to Moms Conference, and the Women Leading Government Conference.

This event is free and appropriate for adults, and is sponsored by the generosity of the Trustees of the Falmouth Public Library.
