An age-old question

Published on November 20, 2017 7:40PM


Award-winning gerontologist Jenny Sasser will be asking people to share their thoughts about death as part of a Tuesday, Nov. 28, presentation in Manzanita.

“Talking about Dying” provides an opportunity for participants to reflect on what stories and influences shape their thinking about death and dying and to hear perspectives and ideas from fellow community members.

Sasser served as chair of the Department of Human Sciences and founding director of Gerontology at Marylhurst University from 1999 to 2015. In addition to co-authoring “Aging: Concepts and Controversies” with Harry Moody, she is first author on the forthcoming book “Gerontology: The basics.” She founded the Gero-Punk Project and offers consulting, workshops and presentations throughout North America.

The talk will run from 3 to 5 pm at the Hoffman Center for the Arts, 594 Laneda Avenue. Admission is free but donations are accepted.
