The Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St. in Davis, welcomes readers to its active older adult book group from 11 a.m. to noon Thursday, Oct. 27, in the Blanchard Room.

The featured title for this month will be Joan Chittister’s “The Gift of Years: Growing Old Gracefully.” The book group will continue to discuss the full spectrum of aging, including the burdens and blessings.

Chittister is an internationally known writer and lecturer and the executive director of Benetvision, a resource and research center for contemporary spirituality. She serves as co-chair of the Global Peace Initiative of Women, a partner organization of the United Nations. She also was an adviser for the groundbreaking report “A Woman’s Nation,” led by Maria Shriver.

Chittister has written more than 40 books.

“This a great opportunity for active older adults interested in reading books on aging to gather and discuss common experiences,” said Yolo County Librarian Patty Wong. “Please consider joining the Active Older Adult Book Group at the Davis Branch Library.”

The  group will share resources on aging. Participants are welcome to bring materials they find helpful for aging with a good health and positive attitude, including having a healthy body and lifestyle, active mind and positive attitude.

No reservations are required. The Blanchard Room is accessible for people with disabilities. Presented by the Yolo County Library, all programs free. For more information, contact Joan Tuss at (530) 757-5588 or [email protected]
