Writers Talk about Reinvention in their 40s, 50s and 60s
Featuring Meredith Maran, author of The New Old Me
With A.M. Homes and Julie Klam
Turning 60 – or 50, or 40 – and beginning again can be daunting, especially in the midst of serious personal events. What is it to reinvent yourself, if you write yourself? Is it ever too late to start anew? To celebrate the release of Meredith Maran’s latest memoir, The New Old Me: My Late Life Reinvention, Greenlight is delighted to bring together three writers as they talk about reinvention in their 40s, 50s, and 60s. The New Old Me is a wrenching, redemptive journey and a heartfelt, wise meditation on the challenges women face today as they age. Maran is joined by A.M. Homes, bestselling and beloved author of The Safety of Objects and most recently the novel May We Be Forgiven, and by writer and memoirist Julie Klam, whose forthcoming book The Stars in Our Eyes has been praised as “insightful, funny, and a total pleasure,” (Meg Wolitzer).
