Bonnie speaking at the IAGG Age Stage Program
It's always a good week when you can spend days listening and learning about Creative Aging. That's what happened on the Age Stage during the recent IAGG World Conference in San Francisco. Audience members explored art, music and theatre performances, readings, films, and so much more. It was an honor to present "The Wonderful World of Senior Theatre" to an enthusiastic crowd.

We hope you're having a wonderful summer!
Yours in Theatre,

She reviews current children's literature and complies a carefully selected list of books for parents, grandparents, and teachers. You'll find that "Growing up and Growing Older" is a rich and useful survey because of its meaningful portrayals of older adults, all to promote positive aging. It's a delightful and fun list.
