Stupid Things I Won’t Do When I Get Old
Thursday, November 11, 2021, 6:00 PM until 7:00 PM
Steven Petrow, an award-winning journalist and author who is best known for his Washington Post and New York Times essays on aging, health, and civility, will discuss his newest book, "Stupid Things I Won't Do When I Get Old", part memoir and part manifesto. Shortly after his 50th birthday, Petrow began confronting and correcting his ageist beliefs with a vow not to let life diminish or disappoint him as he makes his own journey forward. Armed with a list of "things I won’t do when I get old," he humorously, honestly contrasts his parent’s generational attitudes towards aging with his own.
