Brooks story was fun and quirky with some unexpected turns. One character wore a nautically themed dress which is ironically what Brooks wore for her reading. One of the guests at a dinner party turned out to be an alien, literally. Hmmm, that might be a spoiler alert. Back up a sentence and strike that from the record. Geoff Benge sat like "The Thinker" in the audience, leaning forward to soak in every word.
After the reading, there was wine and conversation. Steve McCall told me about an open forum called "Sundowning" he started for people who care for Alzheimer patients. Apparently a person with Alzheimers can function normally during the day, but at night, they get aggressive and are prone to wander. The term refers to a psychological state of confusion and restlessness that begins at dusk and during evening hours while the sun is setting. I thought "Sundowners" would be a good title of a horror film in which aging baby boomers would wander the city streets in the evenings causing havoc and mayhem. Granted it is tasteless but it could make for an amazing apocalyptic film. Wait, wouldn't you know, I'm too late. A film titled, "Sundowning" has been made already. Just my luck.
