Monthly support group for solo agers. This is a semi-structured group with a designated topic relevant to solo agers.

This month We will be discussing Flying Solo, a study that explores the differences in how solo and supported agers plan to address the needs and concerns associated with aging.

With declining birth rates, increasing divorce rates, and more people living alone, the solo ager demographic is increasing.

This brief science-based overview will be a useful starting point for reflection and discussion.

"Flying Solo" will be posted for your access on the newly-created "Solo Agers" NEV forum page. Don‘t worry about joining the group if you don‘t have a chance to read it. All perspectives are welcome.

We will be discussing "Deer Hunting with Jesus" by Joe Bageant. This is Bageant’s report on what he learned when he returned to his hometown of Winchester, Va. Two of five of the people in his old neighborhood did not have high school diplomas or health care. “Alcohol, overeating and Jesus were the preferred avenues of escape.” The book is a call to arms for progressives with little understanding of the church-going, gun-owning America that has never set foot in a Starbucks. The book was written in 2007 but his description of income inequality and problems facing the working poor seem equally valid today.

This book group is currently full and unable to accept new members. Please contact the Village Manager if you are interested in forming or joining a new book group.
