Description
The glory of growing older is the freedom to be more truly ourselves—with age we gain the liberty to pursue bold new endeavors and worry less about what other people think. In this richly illustrated volume, bestselling author and artist Lisa Congdon explores the power of women over the age of forty who are thriving and living life on their own terms. Profiles, interviews, and essays from women—including Vera Wang, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Julia Child, Cheryl Strayed, and many more—who've found creative fulfillment and accomplished great things in the second half of their lives are lavishly illustrated and hand-lettered in Congdon's signature style. The perfect gift for women of all ages, A Glorious Freedom celebrates extraordinary lives and redefines what it means to gain wisdom and maturity.

        September 1, 2017
        Stephanie Young started medical school at age 53. Seventy-four-year-old Fay Westenhofer found her passion for distance walking when she was in her sixties. Competitive swimmer Dara Torres staged an Olympic comeback at age 41. Like author Laura Ingalls Wilder, chef Julia Child, and social-advocate Anna Arnold Hedgeman, these women either didn't discover, or didn't indulge, their life's passion until they reached or passed middle age. At a time when the cultural norm deems women in their forties and beyond to be less-than-fully-contributing members of society, Young, Westenhofer, Torres, and others illuminated in Congdon's revelatory spotlight experienced an epiphany that inspired them to finally pursue lifelong dreams. Overcoming emotional trauma, battling physical setbacks, and challenging naysayers, these intrepid women bravely defied convention. Through crystalline profiles, probing interviews, and candid essays, the remarkable women celebrated in Congdon's vibrantly illustrated collection trace the genesis of their journeys of self-discovery and offer stirring words of encouragement to any woman, of any age, longing for personal, professional, creative, or emotional fulfillment.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2017, American Library Association.)
