A New Vison of Elder Culture

Starting Wednesday, Oct 6, join the Phinney Village Book Group for a discussion on elder culture.

The PNA Phinney Village is a program concept for aging in place in our neighborhood and a key ingredient in the planning and success is a new vision of aging. Let’s begin to look at this vision by exploring some books that allow us to form a positive, inspiring, shared ideal of becoming an elder. These books will include: Theodore Roszak’s The Making of an Elder Culture and Studs Terkel’s Coming of Age.

The Book Group will meet at 5:30 pm the first Wednesday of each month at the Green Bean coffee house. The group will inspire and motivate us to talk about our hopes for our own aging in community.
