Book Club: This Chair Rocks, A Manifesto Against Ageism - Zoom

Our termly Mainstreet Book Club, designed to promote our love of literature in a positive and nurturing environment, is back for the second edition. Our purpose remains to bring our community together to learn about and discuss issues that matter to us.

All ‘isms’ – ageism, racism, sexism – are socially constructed ideas.

"Different kinds of discrimination – including racism, sexism, ageism, ableism, and homophobia – interact, creating layers of oppression in the lives of individuals and groups.” This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism, by Ashton Applewhite, is an excellent book for reflecting on our own biases and how to intentionally act to address them. We invite you to join us in reading and joining a virtual book group discussion open to all.

Drawing on abundant studies and interviews, Ashton exhorts readers “to wake up to the ageism in and around us, embrace a more nuanced and accurate view of growing older, cheer up, and push back."

The first 50 Mainstreet Members registered will receive a complimentary copy of the book available for pick up at any of Mainstreet's four locations.
