Adult 55+ Book Group: Honest Aging


Join our monthly book group! Discuss new releases, fiction, and nonfiction with your peers. Every month an author visits and fields questions about their book and the writing and publication process. Books are available for purchase and included with the Adult Membership Pass. This month’s book is Hon­est Aging: An Insider’s Guide to the Second Half of Life by Dr. Rosanne M. Leipzig, a top doctor with more than 35 years of experience caring for older people. She pro­vides guid­ance for com­mon health con­cerns and advice about how to make deci­sions about healthcare, dri­ving, and where to live. Help­ful check­lists are included to pre­pare for doc­tor and hos­pi­tal vis­its. Enriched by illus­tra­tions, patient sto­ries, and deep dives into sci­ence and the lat­est research, Hon­est Aging gives you the tools to take con­trol of your health and well-being as you age.


$18 per person. Please purchase a single or 10-class card and then RSVP. Adult Membership Pass holders attend for free, but RSVP is required. Learn more about the Adult Membership Pass.
