Ashton Applewhite OFFSITE

March 15, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

The Retirement Center and Ashby Village are pleased to host Ashton Applewhite, activist and author of This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism,  a rousing manifesto against discrimination and prejudice on the basis of age.

Applewhite takes readers and audiences on a journey, examining the historical roots of ageism and how it divides and diminishes us. She examines how ageist stereotypes affect the way our brains and bodies function in the workplace and the bedroom! Starting with her own experiences and her explorations of ageism, Ashton leads us to a vision of what an all-age-friendly world would look like, and offers a rousing call to action.

Ashton Applewhite has been recognized by the New York Times, The New Yorker,National Public Radio, and the American Society on Aging as an expert on ageism. She blogs at This Chair Rocks, speaks widely around the world, has written for Harper’s and Playboy, and is the voice of Yo, Is This Ageist? In 2016, she joined the PBS site Next Avenue’s annual list of 50 Influencers in Aging as their Influencer of the Year.
