Meet four extraordinary people who are redefining what ‘ageing’ and ‘eldership’ mean, and learn some of their insights into having a long and fruitful life.
Renée Hollis travelled the length and breadth of New Zealand to interview 120 centenarians and shares 38 of their stories in Keepers of History. Poet, playwright, author and nonagenarian Renée (The Wild Card, These Two Hands: A Memoir) is still playing with words. Former MP and academic Phillida Bunkle, who returned to flatting with friends in her 70s, loves a good policy debate. They all have a great deal to share about what it means to be an active and productive senior, while Dr Shaun Holt (Medical Cannabis, Natural Remedies that Really Work) explains why we’re living longer and how we can be healthy.
