Educator and Caregiver

Jonathan G. Silin, Ed.D., 1982, has published his fourth book, My Father's Keeper: The Story of a Gay Son and His Aging Parents (Beacon Press, 2005). Called "thoughtful and erudite" by Publishers Weekly, the book chronicles Silin's efforts to help his parents deal with their failing health and how those efforts are informed by his experiences as an early childhood educator and as a caregiver to HIV/ AIDS patients. A member of the graduate faculty at Bank Street College of Education in New York, Silin has published articles in the TC Record, Harvard Educa-tion Review, Educational Theory and elsewhere. His first book, published by Teachers College Press in 1995, is titled Sex, Death, and the Education of Children: Our Passion for Ignorance in the Age of AIDS.
