Reinventing Yourself After Sixty

10am PST

Robert and Elisa Bildner believe life is an adventure and after sixty we are each just getting started. As former lawyers, CEO’s, journalists and communal leaders, it would appear that they have filled their dance card; but they have now added cookbook authors to their resume.

With the launch of their new book The Berkshires Farm Table Cookbook, they show how each sacred moment is an opportunity to write a new chapter of your book of life.

Be inspired today. To purchase the book, please visit TheBookLoft

We encourage everyone to watch the presentation live. It will not be available to view as we are currently working behind the scenes to improve the user experience.
