This book is not just for "old" people: Part 1

"I am just another version of you. We are just versions of each other."
Norman Lear

So true. I’m a younger version of you, I’m an older version of you.
You might think this book is about old people or for old people. It’s really not.

Young adults in their 20s wanted to be interviewed and share their stories in this book. There are people in mid-life and elder hood who talk about their younger selves.
This book is for teenagers who think their parents and grandparents are old and gross.
It’s for 20- and 30-somethings who feel pressured to make decisions and meet expectations about career, relationship, home, family and who they are.
It’s for 40- and 50-somethings who think they are too old or look old, or are told they are too old or look old.
We worry about being old, or are made to worry about being old, seems like all the time.

And that’s just the part about aging. Then there’s death and dying, and who doesn’t need to engage with that in their life, maybe even today. When we’re kids, teenagers and young adults, we need it most and spoken with least.

So this book is not just for old people, it’s for all of us. Read more about it here.
