I Love Being Old
Wednesday, December 6th, 2pm
Join author Armiger Jagoe for an afternoon of awakening to life’s truths, laughter, and embracing the joy of growing old.
Mr Jagoe will discuss the blessing of Old Age, how looking through the winter trees at our lives helps us to know ourselves, how change is vital and how important awareness is to illuminate our way.
Mr Jagoe is an activist with the goal of awakening seniors to the fact that the last phase of life CAN BE MADE the best. His new book, “I Love Being Old”, rather than being a how-to book, is an account of how he is accomplishing this during the last period of his remarkable life. The book enjoys endorsements from Jimmy Carter, Dame Judy Dench and Sir David Attenborough.
Mr Jagoe, at 96, wants us to think, “If that old codger can do it, so can I.” A lesson for all ages.

Sneaking around our shop are mysterious, annoying little creatures we call Book Elves.
They hide our pens, rearrange our books, unplug our lights and generally try to make us more crazy than we already are.
While in the shop, if you happen to see a small elf-like creature scampering about, please try to herd them back to their door located in the children's section. Thank you.
