The CLC Book Club meets on Monday June 10, 2019, at 7:00pm in the CLCW Room to discuss Happiness is a Choice You Make: Lessons from a Year Among the Oldest Old by John Leland. In 2015, when the award-winning journalist John Leland set out on behalf of The New York Times to meet members of America’s fastest-growing age group, he anticipated learning of challenges, of loneliness, and of the deterioration of body, mind, and quality of life. But the elders he met took him in an entirely different direction. Despite disparate backgrounds and circumstances, they each lived with a surprising lightness and contentment. The reality Leland encountered upended contemporary notions of aging, revealing the late stages of life as unexpectedly rich and the elderly as incomparably wise. Here we find an enduring collection of lessons that emphasizes, above all, the extraordinary influence we wield over the quality of our lives. With humility, heart, and wit, Leland has crafted a sophisticated and necessary reflection on how to “live better”—informed by those who have mastered the art. The discussion will be led by Gary Wolfe. Come join us! Looking Ahead: The CLC Book Club meets Monday July 8, 2019, at 6pm in the Parish Hall for the Annual Salad Potluck Book Choosing Meeting. Watch for details.
