Humor and Aging, a New Book

28 March @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free

Join Sherry Deren as she  reads from her new book, “Not Done Yet: The Humor of Aging,”an illuminating exploration of the funny side of aging. Professor Deren, a retired social psychologist who spent most of her
career directing federally funded behavioral research studies into HIV and drug use also has a sense of humor!!! Made up of a selection of her blog posts (humorandaging.com) of the last four years, Sherry’s anthology is a
rich mixture of how a sense of humor and some common sense can help us cope with aging and
even enjoy it.

While covering many of the usual challenges and pleasures of aging, including staying
healthy, deciding what to save or throw away, and managing changing family relationships, Not
Done Yet also takes the reader into new uncharted territory worthy of senior consideration:
hearing aids that play nice music when somebody compliments you and automatically turn down
the volume when confronted by an angry or critical person; designer lenses that block out messy
street garbage and distort the faces of people whose advice is both unwanted and overbearing,
and dental implants that when tapped deliver refreshing mouth wash, savory tastes and other
culinary delights. “Rather than simply look to restore the previously youthful functioning of our
senses,” says the author, “why not just use technology to enhance those senses that have declined
with age.” Why not, indeed!
