I have met more interesting people in the past 6 months since I published my book! The author of this book, Sylvie Heyman comes from my hometown and we share a lot in common. So, here is to another fringe benefit of publishing!
Ok – so it is for next April…But I just got booked to do my Aging Discussion next April. Sharing my stories from my book, RAGING AGAINST AGING, poems by Judith Viorst, Dr. Seuss, and citing Nora Ephron, we explore the five major concerns of aging. This is NOT a How-To, because I do NOT know how-to age, we discuss our feelings using humor.
I will be presenting my book discussion on aging – not a how-to – because I DO NOT KNOW how to! Instead, we will explore the five most common concerns about aging and how we feel about them. Using stories from my life and book, RAGING AGAINST AGING, and poems by Judith Viorst ( Too Young to be Seventy, Unexpectedly Eighty), Dr. Seuss (You’re Only Old Once), and Nora Ephron (I Feel Bad about my Neck), we will laugh as we do everything we can to stay relevant!!!!!!! If you have a mom or dad there, please join us!
If you click on the link or go to MSK – Visible Ink – you can donate to the cause. The anthology costs $25.00 and it is all work by Cancer patients who work with famous writers to get their work to professional level. It is not only the body that must heal, it is the mind and soul, too.
My essay GOTCHA , where I talk to my grandson’s knee, is part of this anthology.
HELP FIGHT CANCER AND THE HAVOC IT WREAKS ON THE SOUL AND MIND AS WELL AS THE BODY. And enjoy the writing.
I was raised to believe that all of human intelligence can be found on the shelves of our libraries. I have been told that my book RAGING AGAINST AGING is a mix of wisdom and wit. Anyone of the over 100 readers, please consider donating a copy to YOUR library. And remember, I donate a portion of proceedings to Memorial Sloan Kettering for cancer research for the sake of my children and grandchildren.
