The columns which were written by Jacques Boersma in Dagblad van het Noorden have been collected, revised, supplemented and interlaced with poems by Berthe Zwama and paintings by Joke Dijk-Boersma. The book was very well-received at the many meetings Jacques Boersma attended throughout the country, giving lectures, taking part in discussions and giving interviews. It is an amazing book. The Alzheimer Nederland Foundation has supported the realization of this publication. By ordering this original Dutch language book online, via our website, a small percentage of the proceeds will be donated to the ‘Cotton Wool in my Head Foundation’.
