What if growing old meant writing the novel you've always wanted to write, or painting, or singing, or teaching, or traveling to a place you've always dreamed of visiting?
On Tuesday, November 1, 2011, at 6:30 p.m. at the Plaza Branch, 4801 Main St., Harry J. Getzov presents his book, gOld, in a public conversation with KCUR personality Laura Ziegler.
Getzov, who wrote most of his book in the Library's Plaza Branch while doing research from 2007-2009, introduces us to many of the extraordinary senior citizens he interviewed for his book and his ongoing Eldercation project created to promote positive aging. In the book, seniors - including Len Dawson, Ollie Gates, and Walt Bodine - speak freely of lessons learned and wisdom gained while sharing feelings about aging and demonstrating that life after 65 can be passionate and beautiful.
Admission is free. A 6 p.m. reception precedes the presentation. RSVP online or call 816.701.3407.
Major funding for programs at the Kansas City Public Library is provided by a generous grant from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.
