Book launch: How to Handle Later Life – Wednesday 9 August

Below is the text of an email concerning a book on topics which purport to be relevant to members of Tonbridge U3A.  Publishing this information departs from the TU3A protocol not to promote items which are for commercial gain but the content may justify bringing it to your attention.

 

“On Wednesday, August 9th, I shall be giving a talk at Tunbridge Wells Waterstones (32-40 Calverley Road, Tunbridge Wells, TN1 2TD) to coincide with the publication of my book How to Handle Later Life. This is a 1200-page work, fifteen years in the writing, which offers information and guidance in fields such as housing, social care, healthcare, finance, social contact, transport, legal representation and end-of-life matters.

In my talk at the book’s launch, I shall offer reflections on the good and bad features of being an older person in Britain today and offer tips in such areas as health rights, nutrition, choosing retirement housing, making the most of the social care system and moving around town and country for people with a mobility problem. My book covers the whole of the UK, but several of the case examples are drawn from Kent (my home county), including the efforts of the Tunbridge Wells Access Group to improve the infrastructure of the town centre for people who use wheelchairs.

Glasses of wine and soft drinks will be offered at the event and copies of my book will be available to buy, price £22.99.

Tickets can be obtained from Waterstones Tunbridge Wells, price £3, by calling 01892 535446 or emailing tunbridgewells@waterstones.com. The price of the ticket can be redeemed against the purchase of a copy of the book on the night.

There is information about my activities on my website, and at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marion_Shoard.

Information about How to Handle Later Life is also available at on the website of my publisher, Amaranth Books, at www.amaranthbooks.co.uk. Your members may perhaps have spotted an article I wrote about living-apart-together relationships which was published last autumn in Third Age Matters.

Tunbridge Wells Waterstones is situated just south of the Royal Victoria Shopping Centre. The store is a short walk from Tunbridge Wells station, with many buses plying past the station and up Mount Pleasant Road. Three trains run in both directions between Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells during weekday evenings. Parking is available at nearby Crescent Road, for example.

I much hope some of your members will be able to join me on August 9th. I have also alerted Tunbridge Wells U3A.

With best wishes,

Marion Shoard”
