A book reading & talk by author Stephen Jenkinson from his newest book, Come of Age The Case for Elderhood in a Time of Trouble

Join us for a time devoted to grief and wonder, and some prescription scribbled in the sand for what a withered world might now ask of younger folk and of the older folk among us who love them.

Imagine a future that replaces retirement with esteemed elderhood, where young people receive recognition of their worth and purpose, and see living examples of enduring discernment and courage for the hard and often empty times that are upon us all. Stephen Jenkinson believes the esteem of parents and friends can only go so far: Elders must bring the rest. Our work is to sort out what being human should be in such a time.
