Beyond the Book

According to the New Hampshire Center for Public Policy, by 2030,29.2% of the population in Merrimack County, NH will be age 65 and older - this is up from 12.4% in 2000. As the population continues to grow there is inherent value in providing opportunities to find meaning and beauty in aging while responding to living in an age-phobic culture. Through the use of visuals and the book, Aging with Wisdom by Olivia Ames Hoblitzelle, Beyond the Book - Discussion with the Author will provide participants the opportunity to reflect on the aging process: noticing how the body changes can provide space for reflection on life's gifts and challenges, and aging often brings family members together, creating an opportunity to heal broken relationships.
