Robert Levithan, author of The New 60: Outliving Yourself and Reinventing a Future comes to Stonewall Live! Thursday, Sept 20thth 9PM EST.

The New 60 is an exploration of approaching (and, eventually, arriving at) 60—an age that had once seemed beyond my reach. Aging in the 21st Century is an exciting new frontier. We are redefining its meaning as we live it. This is that journey.

Anybody approaching 60 and feeling like they might have experienced the best part of their life NEEDS TO READ THIS BOOK! They will discover an amazing truth: that in so many ways the best is yet to come. Levithan's story is truly extraordinary - and he tells it with great style! I read it in one sitting - and plan to make it a staple gift for anybody approaching the big SIX -O! – Stu Richardson
