Marcia Gay Harden Remembers What Her Mom No Longer Can

Marcia Gay Harden’s mother, Beverly, loved arranging flowers – a skill she learned while living in Asia. It’s through that lens that the Oscar-winning Texan tells Beverly’s story of love, loss and eventual struggle with Alzheimer’s disease. Her new book is called “The Seasons of My Mother: A Memoir of Love, Family, and Flowers” (Atria Books), which she’ll talk about more tonight as part of DMA Arts and Letters Live.
