First Thought Talk with Kate Mulgrew

Watch actor and author Kate Mulgrew's 2019 First Thought Talk, 'How to Forget: A Daughter's Memoir'.

When her father is diagnosed with aggressive lung cancer and her mother with atypical Alzheimer’s, Kate Mulgrew, star of Orange Is the New Black and Star Trek, returns to her hometown in Iowa to spend time with and care for her parents. Her profoundly honest memoir How to Forget takes us on an unexpected journey of loss, betrayal, and the transcendent nature of a daughter’s love for her parents. She is joined in conversation by Eithne Verling, Director, Galway City Museum.
