Details: Product Description This enchanting collection of writings and photographs evokes the beauty, humor and courage of women living in their later years and tells of the endearing moments of joy--and passion--to be found in the rich and varied world of midlife and beyond. An award-winning anthology that takes a refreshing look at issues of aging in a society that glorifies youth. From the Publisher Eleven years after its first publication, the writing and art in this powerful and provocative award-winning anthology still touches millions of readers worldwide. Acclaimed for its honesty and realism on a sensitive issue-"It sounds a message, addressing a group that needs and wants to hear it" (Los Angeles Times)- WHEN I AM AN OLD WOMAN I SHALL WEAR PURPLE mixes celebratory and joyous stories with those depicting the harder edge of aging. These elements are masterfully woven into a single story line that invites readers to rethink societal attitudes and messages about older women. A favorite gift book, a popular reading group choice, and a perennial bestseller with more than 1.5 million copies sold, WHEN I AM AN OLD WOMAN I SHALL WEAR PURPLE celebrates the message of aging as a natural gift of life. This groundbreaking book that "launched a new movement, a new way of looking at aging" (San Antonio Express-News) includes the famous title poem by Jenny Joseph that started the purple craze. Millions of women have taken its message to heart: it's OK to grow older; in fact it's terrific! "You're not getting older, just a little more purple." (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)
