MEREDITH MARAN has a hard time believing she’s a woman of her age. The author of 14 books, including Why We Write, My Lie, and A Theory of Small Earthquakes, she writes for The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, and others. The New Old Me is her brand-new memoir about divorce, despair, and making a new life in a Silver Lake bungalow that’s even older than she is.” http://www.meredithmaran.com/
LISA NAPOLI has been a journalist for over thirty years, leads an-award winning volunteer cooking group at the Downtown Women’s Center on Skid Row in Los Angeles, and produces/hosts a podcast about growing old called Gracefully. Her first book, Radio Shangri-La, chronicles the dawn of democratic rule in the mysterious Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan, where she was invited to help start a youth-oriented radio station. Her newest book, Ray & Joan – The Man Who Made The McDonald’s Fortune And The Woman Who Gave It All Away tells the story of Ray & Joan Kroc and a compelling portrait of the twentieth century: a story of big business, big love, and big giving. http://lisanapoli.com/ and http://rayandjoan.com/
