An Evening With Mary Pipher, Author Of Women Rowing North, at MPC on Jan. 23 at 7 PM

Start: 
January 23, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

GGP and Montclair Presbyterian Church proudly present an evening with Mary Pipher, author of the New York Times best-selling Reviving Ophelia, on Wednesday, January 23rd at 7:00 p.m. She will be discussing her new book, Women Rowing North: Navigating Life’s Currents and Flourishing As We Age. The event will take place at MPC, located at 5701 Thornhill Dr. in Montclair.

Over two decades ago Mary Pipher helped readers understand their daughters in Reviving Ophelia, now she is showing us how to understand our next journey how to age both gracefully and thoughtfully with her new book, Women Rowing North: Navigating Life’s Currents and Flourishing As We Age.

In Women Rowing North, Pipher offers a timely examination of the cultural and developmental issues women face as they age. Drawing on her own experience as daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, caregiver, clinical psychologist, and cultural anthropologist, she explores ways women can cultivate resilient responses to the challenges they face. "If we can keep our wits about us, think clearly, and manage our emotions skillfully," Pipher writes, "we will experience a joyous time of our lives. If we have planned carefully and packed properly, if we have good maps and guides, the journey can be transcendent."

Women growing older contend with ageism, misogyny, and loss. Yet as Mary Pipher shows, most older women are deeply happy and filled with gratitude for the gifts of life. Their struggles help them grow into the authentic, empathetic, and wise people they have always wanted to be.
