It's Dementia Action Week and here at Literature Works, we're proud that National Memory Day, celebrating the positive impact of poetry on the lives of those living with memory loss, falls within this week. If you're looking for some books to start conversations with younger readers on the subject of dementia, we think this list from The Book Trust is a great place to start.
