Collective Wisdom: Lessons, Inspiration, and Advice from Women Over 50
POWERFUL WISDOM FROM THE ELDERS OF OUR COMMUNITIES
In this rich and multilayered collection of interviews, conversations, and intimate photographs, over 100 trailblazing women describe the ups, downs, and lessons learned while forging their unique paths. Collective Wisdom celebrates the stories of those who have been there and know the road–from an Olympic athlete and a NASA team member to award-winning artists, activists, writers, and filmmakers, from women in their fifties to centenarians. It is also a tribute to the importance of intergenerational connections between women, with interviews conducted by daughters, friends, mentors, and colleagues. Collective Wisdom creates a living, breathing sense of community–a space where all of us can gather, listen, share, and learn.
“In her new book, Grace Bonney continues where In the Company of Women left off and connects the dots between women of all generations (from ages 18 to 100), offering a brand-new perspective on empowering and empowered women. Collective Wisdom will include a multilayered tapestry of interviews, conversations, intimate photos, wish lists, artwork, images of handwritten letters, and more, designed so it’s both a keepsake and a treasury of wisdom that readers will turn to often and gift to others. Collective Wisdom will celebrate all the different ways women form community and how those relationships keep us going in trying times. Over 70 percent of the book will feature women of color, women with disabilities, and women from the LGBTQ+ community”
