Conversation Project: How We Grow Old

Stories of Aging in Oregon and Beyond

January 26, 2019 | 6:00 p.m. | Coos Bay Public Library

525 Anderson Ave., Coos Bay OR 97420

What are the stories that shape how we think about growing old? How do we acknowledge the unique differences among aging individuals and separate the true stories from the myths? How do we accept the wisdom of our elders’ experiences while also recognizing new ideas about what it means to age in America? No matter our age, we all hear and tell stories about growing older that reflect our own ideals and fears—and the ideals and fears of our communities. Join facilitator Melissa Madenski as we look at the power of story in a conversation that will ask you to share your own experiences and ideas about aging and listen to the perspectives of others in your community.
