The St. Louis County Library Foundation is pleased to present bestselling author and beloved broadcast journalist Jane Pauley for a discussion and signing of her book "Your Life Calling: Reimagining the Rest of Your Life" on Saturday, January 11 at 7:00 p.m. at Library Headquarters, 1640 S. Lindbergh Blvd.
The format of the event will be an on-stage interview with KMOX's Debbie Monterrey.
The program is free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase at the event from Left Bank Books.
The event is presented by Maryville University.
In 2014, every baby boomer will have reached the milestone age of 50. For most, it's not an end but the beginning of something new. This is the awakening of a generation to the opportunities that lie ahead. Research has shown that people in their fifties are more vital now than they were only 10 years ago. They're saying, "I'm game, I'm up for it, I want to do more."
Jane Pauley, one of America's most beloved and trusted broadcast journalists, gives voice to the opportunities of her generation-and the next one too-offering humor and insight about the journey forward. "Your Life Calling" is a fresh look at ideas that have been simmering since boomers first entered midlife with a different perspective on the future than any generation before: that there was more to come-and perhaps the best of all.
Jane is not an advice giver but a storyteller. Here she tells her own story and introduces readers to the fascinating people she has featured on her award-winning Today show segment, "Life Reimagined Today." You'll meet Betsy McCarthy, who traded in her executive briefcase for knitting needles; Gid Pool, who launched a career as a stand-up comic; Richard Rittmaster, who joined the National Guard Chaplain Corps; Trudy Lundgren, who took her home on the road in an RV; Paulie Gee, who opened a successful pizzeria in Brooklyn; and many more. Their stories are delightful, compelling, and inspiring for anyone asking "What am I going to do with my supersized life?"
Jane Pauley has been a familiar face on TV for more than 30 years. She served as co-host of Today from 1976 to 1989, anchored Dateline NBC for 11 years, and in 2004 became the host of her own daytime program, The Jane Pauley Show. Her memoir, "Skywriting: A Life Out of the Blue," was a New York Times bestseller.
Program sites are accessible. Upon two weeks notice, accommodations will be made for persons with disabilities. Contact St. Louis County Library by phone 314-994-3300 or visit www.slcl.org.
