“THE LIONESS IN WINTER: WRITING AN OLD WOMAN’S LIFE”
A Talk by Ann Burack-Weiss
In her new book, “The Lioness in Winter: Writing an Old Woman’s Life,” noted social worker Ann Burack-Weiss, PhD, LCSW, draws on the late-life writing of authors like Maya Angelou, Colette, Joan Didion, Doris Lessing and Adrienne Rich for inspirational and practical guidance as she navigates aging. The longtime social work practitioner, consultant and educator who has taught at the Columbia School of Social Work and is now an associate faculty member at Columbia’s Program in Narrative Medicine will talk about her research and revelations while writing this book, which “speaks to pain, illness, reflection, and even suicide,” notes Miami University gerontology professor Kate de Medeiros. “Given her experience as a researcher…,her perspective is particularly well-informed.”
