Cultural Works and “Gray Matters”
“How to” books offer some insight into the experience of growing old, but literature, film, television and art reveal a more in-depth study of aging. This course brings together material from Lem’s 2020 book “Gray Matters” that examines important issues that arise in later life. Besides reflecting on literary sources, research from 200 interviews with individuals over 65 will be shared. Meets 3 Fridays on 3rd Friday of the Month: Sept 17, Oct 15th and Nov 19th.
Session 1: Relationships with Adult Children
