Read full description of the books:
With wisdom and humour, forty-one remarkable, mature women over 50 revel in the joys of aging.
Nora Ephron struck a chord with I Feel Bad about My Neck. Women's advocate and acclaimed writer Shari Graydon set out to counter the supposed downhill slide-inspired grief by inviting notable women of age from across Canada -- all over 50 -- to provide an alternative perspective.
I Feel Great about My Hands is a collection of stories, essays and poems celebrating life, and embracing the changes, discoveries and wisdom that come with age. This colourful anthology includes:
Gemini award-honoured funnywoman Mary Walsh on playing a "big, loud, opinionated old bag"
Celebrated poet Lorna Crozier's hilariously graphic "My Last Erotic Poem"
Val Napoleon, an adopted Gitksan member of Cree heritage applying Aboriginal trickster tales to modern attitudes about aging gracefully
Shari Graydon herself focusing her "face-half-unwrinkled" attention on the hands that have helped her nurture life and express creativity and joy
Royalties from the book will benefit Media Action, an organization dedicated to challenging the under-representation and sexualization of women in the media.
