Laura Radensky, Chair, Uptown Interagency Council, will lead the discussion.
Following in the tradition of ESCOTA’s December book club, Uptown Interagency Council is planning on having an intimate gathering before the holidays to share thoughts on an excellent new book just released this summer on the experience of aging. The book chosen is “Old Woman and the City” by Ann Burack Weiss who was a professor at Columbia University School of Social Work for many years who authored a few other books in the past. She has written a memoir talking about her life as a very active 85 year old woman living alone in New York City that reflects honestly and movingly on her experiences and those of all of us as we age. Refreshments will be served as we take time to talk to each other and share our thoughts on this short but very powerful book.
