    As women grow older, they contend with ageism, misogyny and loss.  Yet, as author Mary Pipher shows, most older women are deeply happy and filled with gratitude for the gifts of life. Their struggles help them grow into the authentic, empathetic, wise people they have always wanted to be.

    In Women Rowing North, Pipher offers a timely examination of the cultural and developmental issues women face as they age. Drawing on her own experience as daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, caregiver, clinical psychologist and cultural anthropologist, she explores ways that women can cultivate resilient responses to the challenges they face. “If we can keep our wits about us, think clearly, and manage our emotions skillfully,” Pipher writes, “we will experience a joyous time of our lives.  If we have planned carefully and packed properly, if we have good maps and guides, the journey can be transcendent.”

    This book discussion will be led by Rosemary Cooper, the Library' s Director.  Copies of Women Rowing North will be available at the Front Desk by October 7 for those who register.
