Judith Viorst
Unexpectedly Eighty and Other Adaptations
Monday, November 1; 7:30 PM, JCC Hart Theatre; $8/10
What does it mean to be 80? As Viorst gleefully attests, 80 is not too old to dream, to flirt, to drink or to dance. It's also not too late to give up being cheap or to take up with a younger man - of 78. Zesty, hopeful and full of the pleasures of living, Viorst's poems speak to her legions of readers, who recognize themselves in her knowing observations, in her touching reflections and in her joyful affirmations.

Judith Viorst is a prolific writer of children's picture books, adult fiction and non-fiction, poetry for children and adults, and three oft-produced musicals.

Generously underwritten by Dawn & Jacques Lipson, M.D., Philanthropic Fund.
