Creating While Aging with Priscilla Long

This meeting is online only.

Join us on Monday, March 27 from 6:30 to 8:30 PM (Zoom Room Opens at 6:20PM) for author Priscilla Long’s online presentation “Creating While Aging: How Knowledge of New Science and Role Models Can Spur us to Become More Productive, Better Writers the More We Age”. We welcome our Southern Oregon Chapter members to join us! Priscilla will explore new ways of looking at old age as a potentially dynamic, happy, and creatively productive time. Using science and inspiring stories, her talk counters the image of old age as past the peak of creativity and offers ideas for how to grow into a satisfying old age. This talk encourages creativity in those who feel the years adding up or want to get a head start on that path. The Zoom room will open at 6:00 PM for networking before the meeting.
