Happiness is a Choice You Make: Lessons from a Year Among the Oldest Old by John Leland

In 2015, when the award-winning journalist John Leland set out on behalf of The New York Times to meet members of America’s fastest-growing age group, he anticipated learning of challenges, of loneliness, and of the deterioration of body, mind, and quality of life. But the elders he met took him in an entirely different direction. Despite disparate backgrounds and circumstances, they each lived with a surprising lightness and contentment. The reality Leland encountered upended contemporary notions of aging, revealing the late stages of life as unexpectedly rich and the elderly as incomparably wise.

Please join us for a lively discussion of the book!

All readers are welcome to attend, but registration is preferred.  To register please click on the link below, call 294-3306 x6120, or email tfrawley@nklibrary.org.
