Authors Susan Scott and Susan E. Schwartz will be discussing their recently published book – Aging & Becoming – at a special event to be held in Greenside on Saturday, August 5, at 14h00.
South African author and student of Jung, Susan Scott, teamed up with her US counterpart Jungian analyst and international speaker Susan Schwartz, to write Aging & Becoming: A Reflective Enquiry, an inspirational book which has garnered much media attention in South Africa.
The book is comprised of correspondence between the two women, which began with each writing back and forth on the letters of the alphabet oriented on the subject of aging.
The two authors challenge the view that the older woman has little to offer. Rather, aging is an opportunity to express a more rounded out personality as the tug towards becoming authentic becomes more persistent and real. Just as many reflections occur allowing for growth and new ventures to happen.
Scott explains what will be under discussion at the event: “We will be talking about the challenges and growth possibilities this stage of life brings. What is often unsaid will also be discussed. We will also be encouraging active participation from the audience.”
Susan Scott In Conversation with Susan E. Schwartz will take place at Bookdealers, 39 Gleneagles Road, Greenside. Entrance is free. Refreshments will be served. Signed copies of the book will be available for purchase at R200. Enquiries to Susan Scott on [email protected].
