Have you read a good book lately and thought to yourself how incredible would it be to meet the author and hear from them firsthand? Here’s your chance… we are hosting our Spring Author Series next week, featuring local authors George Schofield, Karen Koenig, and Margaret “Peg” Beck.

George Schofield – February 26, 3:00-4:30pm

Times have changed and so has retirement. It’s not all about saving until “x” amount and coasting through your golden years anymore.

If you missed the chance earlier this year to hear him speak at his FULL event, now is your chance to catch him again. George Schofield, Ph.D., will be speaking on his book, “How Do I Get There From Here?”. His book challenges the concept of traditional retirement. The NEW after 50 lifestyle calls for more than money; it demands conscious engagement, diverse interests, and the ability to adapt. Schofield’s book guides you toward a dynamic future designed just for you.

He will be speaking at the Gulf Coast Community Foundation located at 601 S. Tamiami Trail Venice, FL 34285.
