Author Event: The Age of Dignity

February 3, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Age of Dignity_bookcoverBy 2035, the number of Americans over the age of eighty-five will more than double to 11.5 million. Americans are living longer than ever before, a massive shift that calls into question our ability to care for our families and support our loved ones to age with dignity. And that question touches each of us. Against this backdrop, The Age of Dignity offers specific, sustainable solutions for transforming the inadequate and out-of-date system of long-term care in America today.

Through recent research and personal stories, Ai-jen Poo describes the mounting pressures facing a growing majority of American families. She also puts forth a compelling plan, drawn from hundreds of successful experiments across the country, that will not only benefit families and workers and their ability to form strong relationships of care, but will also generate millions of new jobs and breathe new life into our national ideals of independence, fairness, and dignity.

Join the Institute for Policy Studies, National Domestic Workers Alliance, Caring Across Generations,Teaching for Change Bookstore, Busboys & Poets , and a strong mix of both local and national long-term care stakeholders to show support and learn more from each other. This will be as much a celebration as it will be a formal book signing!

Please let us know you’ll be attending.
