Local author Helen Wilkes will read from her newly published book The Aging of Aquarius: Igniting Passion and Purpose as an Elder.
Author Helen Waldstein Wilkes is a retired Vancouver professor and activist of Jewish/Czechoslovakian background. In her award-winning Letters from the Lost: A Memoir of Discovery, she first examined her life in pre-WW II Czechoslovakia. Much of this sophisticated and well-illustrated material was derived from a treasure trove of letters that Wilkes rescued from an Eaton’s Christmas box after her father died in 1959.
We are thrilled to welcome Helen Wilkes, now in her eighties, at the launch of her new book, The Aging of Aquarius: Igniting Passion and Purpose as an Elder. Whether it is social activism of gardening clubs, Wilkes outlines practical steps to empower elders and infuse life with a sense of purpose and joy. With this book she hopes to encourage others who are transitioning into a post-retirement identity to rekindle their passions and curiosity, and enjoy life to the fullest.
