Don and Patricia Edgar

Join Don and Patricia Edgar at the Geelong Library and Heritage Centre to discuss their new book, Peak: Reinventing Middle Age.

Issues surrounding our ageing population are regularly in the news: from healthcare to retirement it seems there are many unanswered questions about how our society will learn to live with longevity. In Peak, Patricia Edgar (author of In Praise of Ageing) and her husband Don argue that while ‘Middle Age’ once referred to anyone 40+, it should now more broadly encompass those from ages 50–75. People are retiring from work much later and remaining active members of the community well beyond their 60s, and it's time to rethink our ideas about ageing and our emphasis on youth as the best years of life.
