  • An evening with Dr Lucy Pollock, author of 'The Book about getting Older' took place on Friday 1st October 2021 at St James' Church, Taunton

    'The most important book about the second half of your life you'll ever read.’ SANDI TOKSVIG

    To mark International Older Person's Day Dr Lucy Pollock kindly agreed to talk at this event with all profits going to Age UK Somerset.

    Lucy's book is serious, funny, kind, knowledgeable, empowering and very readable. It guides us towards the essential conversations about getting older that go straight to the heart of what matters most.

    There's never been a more important time to talk about getting older.

    If you weren't able to attend the event you can now enjoy a recording of it online!
