It Never Ends: Mothering Middle-Aged Daughters explores the complex challenges and unexpected rewards of aging mothers in their relationships with their midlife daughters.
Based on interviews with women between 65 and 85, it explores issues of closeness, distance, longing, and needs that arise. Mothers speak openly about the ongoing effects of the past on the present, the cultural, familial, and interpersonal conflicts that remain, and the varied and often invisible ways they continue mothering.
This pioneering book raises issues never raised before. Join us for a discussion of what is involved for us, women in our 60s and beyond, in our relationships with our middle-aged daughters in all their many facets, nuances, and complexities. This presentation will leave us with much to think about with respect to our continuing role not only as grandmothers, but as actively engaged mothers.
This event is free to Ashby Village members and volunteers. Non-members will be asked for a $10 donation
