Event description

Description

In a society obsessed with living longer and looking younger, what does middle age nowadays mean? How should a fifty-something be in a world ceaselessly redefining ageing, youth, and experience?

Blackwell's are delighted to welcome to the bookshop Marina Benjamin as the next author to appear in our free series of talks that will be running over the summer period. Marina will be discussing her book 'The Middlepause: On Life After Youth'.

'The Middlepause' offers hope, and heart. Cutting through society’s clamorous demands to work longer and stay young, it delivers a clear-eyed account of midlife’s challenges. Spurred by her own brutal propulsion into menopause, Marina Benjamin weighs the losses, joys and opportunities of our middle years, taking inspiration from literature and philosophical example.

We hope you can join us for this fascinating event. The talk will take place in the Norrington Room.
