Join Rachel Schipper in this King Library online event for a reading of Judith Viorst’s poetry featured in her Decade Series, the most recent of which is entitled. Nearing Ninety and other Comedies of Late Life.
In Nearing Ninety, bestselling author Judith Viorst candidly shares the complicated joys and everyday tribulations that await us at the age of ninety, all with a large dose of humor and an understanding that nothing – ”well, almost nothing” – in life should be taken too seriously. While she struggles to make it to midnight on New Year’s Eve, while she’s starting to hear more eulogies than symphonies, while she’ll forever be disheartened by what she weighs, there is plenty to cherish at ninety: hanging out with the people she loves, playing a relentless game of Scrabble, and enjoying her marriage to the same man for over sixty years.
