Women, Creativity & Aging
Hosted by Sondra Zeidenstein
Mason Library, Great Barrington, 1–3 p.m.
This interactive discussion, led by octogenarian Sondra Zeidenstein, will help participants focus on the way aging is helping or hindering their creative process: the content of their work, their productivity, their publication, their mood, their sense of community.
Sondra Zeidenstein is a poet and publisher of Chicory Blue Press, a feminist press dedicated to publishing poetry by women over the age of seventy. She has a PhD in literature from Columbia University. Now eighty, she is committed to helping artists explore the ageism in our culture: how we have internalized it, and how we can overcome it in our creative lives. She has been writing about and leading discussions on the topic of creativity and age for many years. The first book her press published was A Wider Giving: Women Writing After a Long Silence. www.chicorybluepress.com
