Riverbend invites you to meet with Australian author, television producer, and educator Dr Patricia Edgar to celebrate the release of her new book In Praise of Ageing.
Through a career spanning four decades, Patricia has been at the forefront of media for children nationally and internationally, winning multiple awards for her achievements and programs. In her new book Patricia turns her attention to ageing policy in Australia.
In Praise of Ageing tells the stories of eight people who have lived well into their nineties and beyond. These people will inspire you, entertain you and motivate you to be connected, interested, risk-taking and inventive. They will challenge your preconceptions. And they will convince you that fifty is now the start of the second half of life and not the beginning of the end.
Patricia will be in conversation with Leneen Forde, AC. Leneen is the Chancellor of Griffith University and former Governor of Queensland.
