About the Books

Agng in Places coverAging In Places: Reflective Preparation for the Future describes the numerous and complex places with which older adults interact in everyday life. Reaching beyond much of the literature on aging, this book tells us what getting older is truly like in the voice of an articulate senior. It presents the totality of who elders are and the rich, multifaceted aspects of their existence. It broadens the potential for life planning through reflections on our place in society and culture, communities and neighborhoods, the natural world, houses and homes, among families and friends, and finally, our relationship with ourselves. This book will help readers expand ideas about their future and offer a way to prepare in a constructive, mindful, and creative way.


Marian is currently working on her next book, which is on caregiving. Stay tuned for more information.
