“You don’t have to be nearing ninety to learn HOW TO HAVE A HAPPIER LATE LIFE, a humorous/serious talk–interspersed with relevant poems from my new book, NEARING NINETY AND OTHER COMEDIES OF LATE LIFE. I discuss a variety of attitudes and activities that could help make our so-called golden years better, more interesting, and–yes–happier.”

Viorst tackles the ins and outs of becoming a septuagenarian with wry good humor. She explores, among the many other issues of this stage of life, the state of our sex lives and teeth, how we can stay married though thermostatically incompatible, and the joys of grandparenthood and shopping. Advice and reflections on marriage, milestones, and middle-aged children. For Peace of Mind, Resign as General Manager of the Universe Based on her new book, Imperfect Control, this talk explores how much control we have, or should have over ourselves, our mates, our adult children, and over the world around us.

A funny and touching trip through all the stages of parenthood- the joys, messes, aggravations, heartbreaks, the breaking away, the passionate pride, and the “did I do something wrong?”, the way our children transform our lives and the shocking realization that there’s no such thing as a RETIRED parent.

Based on her New York Times’ bestselling book, this talk shows that the inevitable losses of our life can lead to hope, growth, and change.

Mrs. Viorst suggests that by living our life with knowledge of its finitude and by imagining now what kind of person we want to be at the end of our life, we will make wiser choices and have fewer regrets.

A funny and touching exploration of the issues those at, or around, this age must deal with: our bodies decline, our husbands retire, doctors, and the age of our kids.
