Beyond the Book - Discussion with the Author

As the population continues to grow there is inherent value in providing opportunities to find meaning and beauty in aging while responding to living in an age-phobic culture. Through the use of visuals and the book, Aging with Wisdom by Olivia Ames Hoblitzelle, Beyond the Book ­ Discussion with the Author will provide participants the opportunity to reflect on the aging process: noticing how the body changes can provide space for reflection on life's gifts and challenges, and aging often brings family members together, creating an opportunity to heal broken relationships. A forum for discussion and education will be created incorporating National Library of Medicine resources.
