Beebe Library's Adult Nonfiction Book Group, True Writ
This month we will be reading John Leland's Happiness is a Choice You Make: Lessons From a Year Amongst the Oldest Old, a New York Times Bestseller that takes wisdom from six New Yorkers who number among 'the oldest old' - those 85 and up.
The author is an award-winning journalist who set out to meet members of the country's fastest-growing age group. In addition to encountering the predictable challenges of aging, he also found a group of people who 'upended contemporary notions of aging, revealing the late stages of life as unexpectedly rich and the elderly as incomparably wise.'
