Intergenerational Book Chat Group

The Inter-generational Book Chat is open to OLLI members and students in the University’s Gerontology graduate programs. The group meets monthly to discuss a book about aging with selections ranging from On Being Mortal to Our Souls at Night. Participants appreciate hearing varied points of view and relish in building relationships across generations. This is an independent SIG and members select books and guide discussions.
