Show synopsis: Ada’s Notebooks is the poignant story of three generations of women, and their interactions as one is slowly slipping away. We hear Ada’s descent into Alzheimer’s in her own words, as her many notebooks are discovered, and her history revealed. Ada had been a nurse on the front lines in WWII, then a teacher once she returned from war. She wrote about her life experiences throughout the years, and the notebooks reveal a remarkable woman that her family discovers and loves even more.
