Author event with Carol Orsborn author of Older, Wiser, Fiercer: The Wisdom Collection

Parnassus Books welcomes Carol Orsborn author of Older, Wiser, Fiercer: The Wisdom Collection.

Inspired by timeless wisdom, spirituality and aging expert Carol Orsborn speaks to a new generation coming into age with honesty, passion and grace. Hailed as a classic in the conscious aging genre, this fierce book of essays serves as both a record and instigator of profound spiritual growth.

Seeking to make personal meaning out of the perils and promises of growing older in our challenging times, Orsborn found her inspiration in the wisdom of elders from a wide spectrum of traditions like Florida Scott-Maxwell, Parker J. Palmer, Ram Dass, Richard Rohr, Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and many more.

Older, Wiser, Fiercer: The Wisdom Collection, is the result: a creative act that is part interpretive jazz, part Midrash and above all, as honest an accounting of her own life as possible as she shows us the way to grow courageously into a new season of life.

Carol Orsborn, Ph.D. is the author of over 30 books for and about the Boomer generation, including the Spirituality of Age, winner of gold in the Nautilus Book Awards.  Dr. Orsborn leads the Conscious Aging Book Club for Parnassus Books and is founder/ curator of the Fierce with Age Archives.
