Late Bloomers: A Conversation with Henry Oliver About Reinventing Your Life

Monday May 13 at 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT

Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected


Writer Henry Oliver joins researcher Thomas Arnold for a conversation on Henry’s new book, Second Act: What Late Bloomers Can Tell You About Success and Reinventing Your Life.

An age of anxiety about the future keeps delivering a future of anxiety about age, but Henry Oliver’s Second Act asks us to catch our breath. In this salon, we will talk about how different being belated is from being too late, what promises of unexpected blossoming age holds, and what we can do to fulfill them.

To quote a blurb from Second Act:
Our society tells us over and over that if we’re going to achieve anything, we’d better do it while we’re young. We fixate on stories of prodigies; we put our children in piano lessons or language classes as toddlers, hoping to give them the best shot at success we can.

Join us as we talk with Henry Oliver about the new book, the people and promise he encountered, and what reinventing one’s life can mean.
