The Conscious Aging Book Club will conduct a series of meetings at Parnassus Books for individuals in the Nashville area who aim to age well. The club's meetings, featuring non-fiction and memoir titles, will be led by author Carol Orsborn, Ph.D. Each meeting is free and open to the public; buy the book, read the book, and join the conversation! This month the club will be reading and discussing Aging: An Apprenticeship edited by Nan Narboe.
These thoughtfully selected essays offer an intimate and lyrical account of aging through the decades. Authors Judy Blume, Andrew McCarthy, Gloria Steinem and others draw from their own experiences, describing a specific decade's losses and gains to form a complex and unflinching portrait of the years from nearing fifty to ninety and beyond.
