The New York Times bestselling author From Scratch will deliver the keynote on June 28 at the 2022 Embrace Aging Forum presented by Chambliss Law. Event attendees are also invited to an exclusive book signing with Tembi Locke, who will share her personal experiences as a caregiver and the importance of building community when it matters most, as written in her best-selling memoir. .

Reese Witherspoon and Zoe Saldana are adapting Mrs. Locke’s memoir for Netflix, and the series is set to premiere soon.

“My journey caring for my late husband taught me the depth of the human experience,” Ms Locke said. “I’m proud to honor his memory and our journey together in advocating for the needs of caregivers who experience life’s unexpected twists and turns.”

From Scratch is a New York Times Bestseller, New York Times Audio Bestseller, Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Selection, Barnes & Noble 2019 Summer Reading Pick, and Apple iBook Featured Pick. The book was also chosen as Reese Witherspoon’s May 2019 pick for her Hello Sunshine book club. Ms. Saldana will play Ms. Locke in the upcoming Netflix series.

Chambliss Law partners with Chattanooga’s new independent bookstore, The Book & Cover, for the special book signing. Participants can purchase From Scratch directly from The Book & Cover during the session with the author on the forum. The autograph session is only open to registered participants of the Embrace Aging Forum 2022.

Admission to the Embrace Aging Forum is $55 and includes a light breakfast, breakout sessions, lunch, keynote presentation, and book signing. Tickets are on sale now at
