Our speaker, veteran journalist Paula Span, writes the “New Old Age” and “Generation Grandparent” columns for the New York Times. For our Scholars evening, in addition to insights about aging and caregiving, she will be sharing some of her sweet and funny stories about helping to raise her granddaughter. She also will present some of the latest research on sleep, safety, and bonding; explore why mothers-in-law can have tension with daughters-in-law, and she will discuss how Boomers are finding their own way through grandparenting. She has collected some of her “Generation Grandparent” essays for the new audiobook, The Bubbe Diaries, released by Audible in April.
A former Washington Post reporter, Paula Span teaches at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. Her work has appeared in the New York Times, the Boston Globe, the Philadelphia Inquirer, New York Magazine, Washingtonian, Glamour, Esquire, USA Today, and other publications. She is the author of When the Time Comes: Families with Aging Parents Share Their Struggles and Solutions, published by Hachette. She lives in Montclair, New Jersey, and travels to Brooklyn weekly to help care for her granddaughter.
This will be Zoom- only meeting!
