Odd Mondays | Aging: Representations on Screen and in Print

September 9 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

How is aging represented through different media—on film and by the written word? At the September session of Odd Mondays, Sheila Malkind will talk about film, specifically the Legacy Film Festival on Aging, which she runs—the only three-day festival devoted to films on aging. Nan Narboe brings us the written word as editor of Aging: An Apprenticeship. Authors Judy Blume, Andrew McCarthy, Gloria Steinem, etc., describe their life’s losses and gains, to form a complex and unflinching portrait of the years from nearing fifty to ninety and beyond. Maxine Einhorn of the Mostly British Film Festival and Noe Valley Word Week will moderate. Please note our new 6:30PM start time, a half-hour earlier than previous Odd Mondays events.
