Ashland author Molly Tinsley reads from a memoir chronicling her parents' final years and the struggles she and her siblings faced to ensure their elders' care.

“Entering the Blue Stone” tells how her father, a military man, struggled with Parkinson's disease and her mother descended into dementia. The story, written in Tinsley's acclaimed prose, has been described as "luminous, funny, and heartbreaking."

Tinsley will read from the book at 7 p.m., at Bloomsbury Books, 290 E. Main St., Ashland.
