AuthorSpeak With Cheryl Griffin and Thomas Fiffer, Where The Light Is Brighter

Thursday, November 9, 2023

… is the touching, bittersweet story of life in a long-term care facility, told mostly through the sharp eyes of 98- year-old Edith, who has an opinion on everything—and everyone—and a lifetime of memories that are slowly slipping away. As we accompany Edith through her first year of living in this “never place,” the place on the hill where no one wants to be, we meet a cast of characters of advancing age. But despite her dread of the darkness within—a fear we all share about our elderly futures—brightness breaks through at every turn. Written by a woman who works in the field, Where the Light Is Brighter shatters stereotypes and preconceived notions about the proverbial “old folks home” as we meet the forever young-at-heart folks who challenge our beliefs by greeting their final years with grace, enlarging our hearts as they enliven River’s Edge. A lite lunch will be provided by the Library. To Register email or phone 203-899-2780 ext 15133
