To mark Ageism Awareness Day, join author Jacinta Parsons in a thought-provoking and energising conversation with Claire Halliday, as they delve into the pages of Jacinta’s latest book, 'A Question of Age: Women, ageing and the forever self.'
Through candid discussions, Jacinta and Claire invite the audience to question their perceptions of getting older and navigate the path of adjusting our thinking about being in the world and explore the concept of self-worth in the face of shifting societal expectations.
As part of the event, there will be an exclusive opportunity to engage with Jacinta, where questions can be asked, and a book signing will take place.
This event is a partnership event between the Eastern Elder Abuse Network, City of Boroondara, Eastern Community Legal Centre, Elder Rights Advocacy, Knox City Council, Manningham Council, Maroondah City Council, Whitehorse City Council, Whitehorse Manningham Libraries, Women’s Health East and Your Library.
