Website Launch!

We’re launching You Could Live a Long Time: Are You Ready? with events in Toronto, Victoria, Vancouver, London, Ottawa, Kingston, Montreal and Halifax. These Recognize Our Role Models events will launch the book and acknowledge and celebrate our role models. We are putting into action the book’s message: We have a lot to learn from our elders. Many of the role models interviewed for the book will be coming to the nearest launch, and others are bringing their own role models who are over the age of 75. All the role models will be given a button to wear that says “I’m a Role Model”. 

The Toronto launch will be April 7, Victoria’s event will be April 11, and I’ll be in Montreal on May 2 speaking at Paragraphe’s Books and Breakfast. The details for these events can be found by clicking on Events and this is where we’ll be adding the dates and locations for the other cities.  People are responding enthusiastically to this opportunity to thank their role models. Here is how they describe their guests. “I’m inviting my beloved friend and mentor who is a 76 year-old nun and one of the wisest and most progressive women I know. I've known her since I was 12.” “I’m bringing my role model - a family friend who kept us all laughing during the early years.” “My girlfriend is bringing an 80-year old that has climbed Everest!”  These are going to be extraordinary gatherings!

But you don’t have to wait for the launch to celebrate your role model. Click the link on the upper right hand side “Want to celebrate your own role model?” to access our Role Model Certificates. These can be printed out and filled in to celebrate the people that have influenced you. Also, if you have any photos of role models that you think we should be including in our photo album please send them to us.

You can follow the book tour on twitter and through the photos we’ll be posting on flickr.

Please join us on the tour if you can!
