Phyllis Chinlund’s ’57 new memoir, Looking Back from the Gate: A Story of Love, Art, and DementiaPhyllis Chinlund is enjoying life on the coast of Maine and is proud to announce the publication of her new memoir, Looking Back from the Gate: A Story of Love, Art, and Dementia published by Maine Authors Publishing. From the unique perspective of two careers, geriatric social work and documentary film, Phyllis confronts the cognitive decline of her husband, photographer Ray Witlin. Journals, photographs, and conversations bring the reader along on the rollercoaster of their lives and their move from Manhattan to Maine. As Ray explores with his camera, the book’s twin messages emerge: the saving grace of creativity and enduring love. Phyllis hopes that anyone interested in caring for people with dementia, creativity and aging, or the accomplishments of WT grads can visit the website www.phyllischinlund.com.
