The housekeeper and the professor by Yoko Ogawa ; translated by Stephen Snyder — A beautiful story about family, memory, and math. Yes, math. Ever since a traumatic head injury, a brilliant math professor has had only eighty minutes of short-term memory. The housekeeper hired to care for the Professor returns to her job every morning to find that the Professor has forgotten her. Though he cannot create new memories, the Professor's mind is alive with elegant equations from his past. And the numbers, in all of their articulate order, reveal a new and poetic world to both the Housekeeper and her young son.
This program is for new walkers up to 5 years old with their caregivers.
