Open Book / Open Mind: Gail Collins, “No Stopping Us Now: A History of Older Women in America”

Date: Sun, 03/01/2020
Time: 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Location: Main Library - Auditorium
Categories: Adult Events

“In her lively social history of American women and aging, acclaimed New York Times columnist Gail Collins illustrates the ways in which age is an arbitrary concept that has swung back and forth over the centuries. From Plymouth Rock (when a woman was considered marriageable if “civil and under fifty years of age”), to a few generations later, when they were quietly retired to elderdom once they had passed the optimum age for reproduction, to recent decades when freedom from striving in the workplace and caretaking at home is often celebrated, to the first female nominee for president, American attitudes towards age have been a moving target. Gail Collins gives women reason to expect the best of their golden years.” –Little, Brown, and Company

Gail Collins will be in conversation with journalist and author, Dale Russakoff.
