We are excited to welcome back Harvard-educated theologian and author Stephen Jenkinson to share his upcoming book, Come of Age: The Case for Elderhood in a Time of Trouble. The book will be released on July 3, 2018. During the evening, he will share excerpts from the book, which explores the absence of elderhood in modern society, and discuss the need for a new generation of elders, one poised and willing to be true stewards of the planet and its species.
In 2016, Jenkinson visited the Central Coast for a reading of his award-winning book Die Wise: A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul (2015) at Hospice SLO County's office in San Luis Obispo. He was also a guest of the 2015 San Luis Obispo International Film Festival for a special screening of Griefwalker (2008), a feature film length documentary that follows the author's poignant work with dying people. This special evening is part of his California book tour for his upcoming book. To preorder Come of Age: The Case for Elderhood in a Time of Trouble, please visit www.orphanwisdom.com
Together with Hospice SLO County, Jenkinson invites young people, old people and elders in training to join in for this special evening.
