Marc Freedman's HOW TO LIVE FOREVER Book Tour

Thursday, March 21, 2019 founder and CEO Marc Freedman discussed his 30-year quest to answer some of contemporary life’s most urgent questions:

•    How do people find meaning in the increasing years beyond 50?

•    How can a society with more older people than younger ones thrive?

•    How do we find happiness when we know life is long and time is short?

He referenced his book, How to Live Forever: The Enduring Power of Connecting the Generations to help the audience explore these ideas.

Attendees were then encouraged to think about an issue that concerned them and discuss what they could do to make a difference.

How to Live Forever is a deeply personal call to find fulfillment and happiness in our longer lives by connecting with the next generation and forging a legacy of love that lives beyond us. Check out what others—including Gloria Steinem, AARP’s Jo Ann Jenkins, and former U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan—have to say about the book here.
