Read a book review
Description: Art contradicts text, thus challenging common myths about older adults. For example, the text states, “I’ve been hearing lots of strange things about old people. Some people say they are NOT MUCH FUN. They say grandparents are SLOW…and CLUMSY…” In reality, Yoga and dancing and more are shown, even a little romance.
