Flutist Eugenia Zukerman has been an irreplaceable figure in the American classical music scene for decades. A highly regarded musician, she's served as artistic director of the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival in Colorado and as arts correspondent for CBS Sunday Morning. But Zukerman is also a prolific writer, whose new memoir "Like Falling Through a Cloud" details her recent battle against the effects of Alzheimer's disease. Coinciding with National Alzheimer's Awareness Month, Zukerman will speak about her experiences, read from her book, and give a short flute performance at an event hosted by the Rochester & Finger Lakes Chapter of Alzheimer's Association and Writers & Books.
