Jean Carnahan discusses A Little Help from My Friends: ...and Other Hilarious Tales of Graying Graciously

EVENT:  Jean Carnahan will discuss her new Book A Little Help from My Friends: ...and Other Hilarious Tales of Graying Graciously on Tuesday, May 1, 2012 at 7:00 PM at Unity Temple on The Plaza, Sanctuary, 707 W 47th Street, Kansas City, Missouri 64112.

ABOUT THE BOOK:  Too many older adults look upon their lives as a shrinking island to which they retire surrounded by their aches and pains, regrets, disappointments, and fears.  But not Jean and Edna. They are two gutsy septuagenarians with a hearty outlook on life.  Like ancient seers, they have found the answers to the perplexities of daily living and they are eager to share our insight.  In addition, they review various products they have discovered that lessen “senioritis” or, at least, make it more tolerable.

In these thirty-some, laugh-out-loud essays, Jean and her friend Edna are opinionated and vociferous.  They react to everything from malls, manners, and makeup to birthdays, beauty secrets, and bras.  They take on underwear, handbags, clutter, airport security, grandkids, napping, habits, pets, health, saleswomen, travel, coffee shops, and weddings.  It took Jean and Edna 77 years a piece to figure out life, but they’ve done it with great aplomb.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Jean Carnahan grew up in Washington D.C., and graduated from George Washington University, and she spent most of her life in Missouri, where she worked alongside her husband Mel Carnahan in his 19 political campaigns.  In 2000, Governor Carnahan was elected to the U.S. Senate posthumously, following a plane crash in which he and their oldest son were killed.  Jean went to Washington in his place, becoming the first woman from Missouri to serve in the U.S. Senate.  Now retired, the former First Lady of Missouri is a motivational speaker, political activist, the author of five Books, and creator of the political website
