Older and Bolder - a rallying cry to living audaciously in the last third of your life
Renata Singer is a writer who conceived the idea of Older and Bolder when she realized how much she loved talking to old women. Her other books include True Stories from the Land of Divorce, Goodbye and Hello (on the experience of emigration) and a novel, The Front of the Family. With her husband, the philosopher Peter Singer, she co-edited The Moral of the Story: Ethics Through Literature.
For the first time in history, women can expect to live well from their sixties for another three decades. A drab existence of retirement, disease and disconnection is not an option for this generation of women.
In Older and Bolder, Renata Singer contrasts the stories of the pioneers of active, productive old age against the anxieties of those facing the milestone of turning sixty, considering each viewpoint in the light of revealing research.
Join us for a great conversation on Older and Bolder and Renata's rallying guide to living audaciously in the last third of your life.
