About the Event
We welcome back speaker Jeanette Leardi for this TWO-PART (Tuesday, Dec 1st and Tuesday, Dec 8th; both at 1:00 pm) presentation titled “Stars Invisible by Day – Fascinating Truths About Creativity and the Older Brain”. Do you believe you can still be creative as you get older? What is creativity all about, anyway? Is it a skill that remains the same for every generation, or does its nature change with age? Will you eventually lose your creative powers, or can you increase them with the passing of time? And if so, how? Join Jeanette for this engaging two-part presentation based on the latest neuroscientific research to learn fascinating truths about the forms and styles of creativity as well as what happens in your brain during the processes of inspiration and invention. Discover surprising productive advantages of the older adult brain and ways to maintain/increase your powers of imagination. Jeanette Leardi, a social gerontologist, writer, editor and community educator, has a master’s degree in English from Rutgers University and graduate certificate in Gerontology from University of North Carolina, Charlotte.
