Joys and Challenges of Later Life: Literary Glimpses

Monday, Dec 3, 2012 10:00a to 11:30a
UNCW-OLLI Wilmington, NC

What can we learn about aging from the
imaginative and provocative works of
great writers? Maya Angelou’s
“Living Well. Living Good.” Additionally,
Alice Munro in “The Bear Went over
the Mountain” portrays the challenge
of incipient dementia in an elder and
the impact of it on her marriage. You
will examine other excerpts, such as
M.F.K. Fisher’s “A Question Answered”
and selections from Pearlman’s Binocular
Vision, such as “Capers,” “Unravished
Bride” and “Elder Jinks.”
