As part of the 7th Annual Women’s Health Symposium, the 92nd Street Y invites best-selling author, Gail Sheehy for an inspiring and thought-provoking dialogue on getting the most out of the second half of your life. With a captivatingly authorial delivery, and riding on the tail of her wildly successful books, Passages and Sex and The Seasoned Woman: Pursing the Passionate Life, Sheehy provides a compelling call for women to reignite their passionate selves and refuse the lazy stigma of menopause.
In this visit to New York's 92nd Street Y, Sheehy shares inspirational stories of knowledgeable women successfully embracing their "second adulthood" and reveals a hidden cultural phenomenon. These stories are based on her years as a cultural observer and researcher for her newest publication, Sex and The Seasoned Woman: Pursuing the Passionate Life. Gail Sheehy is the author of Passages and New Passages, both New York Times best sellers, and The Silent Passage, a book that aims to erase the stigma of menopause.
This event took place on April 2, 2006.
