Life is a Sacred Journey: Dismantling Ageism

5:00 PM (PST) | On-line Radio with Program Host Micheal Pope, CEO, Alzheimer's Services of the East Bay
LISTEN IN | DIAL IN: (949) 270-5908 | Complete archives at: www.aseb.org

Featured Guest: Ashton Applewhite, Author and Activist

From childhood on, we’re barraged by messages that it’s sad to be old. That wrinkles are embarrassing, and old people useless. Author and activist Ashton Applewhite believed them too, until she realized where this prejudice comes from and the damage it does.

Today, Ms. Applewhite is on the show to share insights from her book, “This Chair Rocks – a Manifesto against Ageism.” Lively, funny, and deeply researched, This Chair Rocks traces Applewhite’s journey from apprehensive boomer to pro-aging radical, and in the process, debunks myth after myth about late life.

Whether you’re older or hoping to get there, this book will shake you by the shoulders, cheer you up, make you mad, and change the way you see the rest of your life. Age pride!
