Michael Kinsley - Old Age: A Beginner's Guide

Friday, April 29, 2016 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Taking the attitude that “the least misfortune can do to make up for itself is to be interesting,” Kinsley, founder of Slate, former editor at publications including The New Republic and Harper’s, and currently a contributor to The New Yorker and a columnist for Vanity Fair, has put together a spirited collection of essays on the aging of the boomer generation. Organized around his own experience with Parkinson’s, Kinsley’s book is a guide to the physical and philosophical questions that begin to loom as mortality becomes less of an abstraction; Kinsley considers what sorts of achievements make for a life well lived, and looks in general at the legacy the baby boom generation will leave.

Kinsley will be in conversation with Timothy Noah, Labor Policy Editor at Politico.
