The book tour is launched with panache! 

Last night about 200 people came out for the Toronto launch of  “You Could Live a Long Time: Are You Ready” at the University of Toronto Art Centre. The crowd included some 50 smart, sassy seniors. There were two people over the age of 100 and about a dozen Role Models who had been interviewed for the book. Sporting their Role Model buttons, the seniors reminded us that life, like good wine, can get better with age. Check out photos from the evening to get a sense of the fun.  One guest called it “an enchanting evening”, another “inspiring”. The book’s publisher, Thomas Allen, announced that book sales have been so good they are already reprinting. This is a remarkable response since the book has only been in stores for the past week or so. We are leaving for Victoria and the next launch will be on Sunday, April 11 at 2 PM at Chapters, 1212 Douglas St.
