This is a book that champions older women's stories and challenges the limiting outcomes we seem to hold for them. The Book of Old Ladies introduces readers to thirty stories featuring fictional "women of a certain age" who increasingly become their truest selves. Their stories will entertain and provide insight into the stories we tell ourselves about the limits and opportunities of aging. A celebration of women who push back against the limiting stereotypes regarding older women's possibility, The Book of Old Ladies is a book lover's guide to approaching old age and dealing with its losses while still embracing beauty, creativity, connection, and wonder.
