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.
