Book Club Featuring "Women Rowing North" with Facilitator Jan Ulrich (Free)

Women growing older contend with ageism, misogyny, and loss. Yet as Mary Pipher shows, most older women are deeply happy and filled with gratitude for the gifts of life. Their struggles help them grow into the authentic, empathetic, and wise people they have always wanted to be.

In Women Rowing North, Pipher offers a timely examination of the cultural and developmental issues women face as they age. Drawing on her own experience as daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, caregiver, clinical psychologist, and cultural anthropologist, she explores ways women can cultivate resilient responses to the challenges they face. "If we can keep our wits about us, think clearly, and manage our emotions skillfully," Pipher writes, "we will experience a joyous time of our lives. If we have planned carefully and packed properly, if we have good maps and guides, the journey can be transcendent." Source: Bloomsbury Review;

Join us as we use this wise woman’s guide book to spark discussion and inspiration to create a packing list for our next, current, or even distant future phase of life. The gentlemen are invited too! Information in this book can be just as relevant to most men as well. We’ll also have a sign-up sheet to gauge folks’ interest in joining an ongoing literary discussion group with different discussion topics and accept suggestions for more literary selections.
