Ending Ageism

agisn1What is Ageism? Have you encountered incidents of Ageism?
At a BrooklineCAN-sponsored program, meet Margaret Morganroth Gullette, author of Ending Ageism, or How Not to Shoot Old People. The subtitle refers both to cameras (the power of portrayal) and to guns (the very real risks of growing old in an ageist world). One of the world’s leading authorities on age and ageism, Gullette says  the major obstacle to aging well is ageism, the assumption that older people are alike and that aging impoverishes us.  As you see or personally experience ageism, take note of incidents you encounter or come across in magazines, newspapers, TV, or online.  Thursday, March 8, at 6:00 pm at Brookline Public Library, 361 Washington Street. The program is free. Call 617-730-2770 to register.
