Imagine awakening one day and not recognizing your husband or your two children, and having no memory of your life. This unbelievable-but-true story happened at 22 years old to Su Meck, a Montgomery College alumna, who suffered a traumatic brain injury when a ceiling fan fell on her head. Released February 4, 2014, <i>I Forgot to Remember</i> is Meck's memoir, which documents her struggle and eventual triumph in relearning how to read, care for her herself and her family, and even graduate from Montgomery College.

Written with former <i>Washington Post</i> reporter Dan de Vise, <i>I Forgot to Remember</i> was inspired by de Vise's front page story celebrating Meck's 2011 graduation from Montgomery College. Meck has since transferred to Smith College in Massachusetts, and will graduate in May.

On <b>Tuesday, February 4,</b> Meck and her new book were featured on "CBS This Morning." CNN's Anderson Cooper conducted an interview with Meck on his show "Anderson Cooper 360" <b>Wednesday, February 5</b>.

If you are interested in purchasing a copy of <i>I Forgot to Remember</i>, our own MC Books & More will have copies in stock this week at 20% off the cover price.
