Purpose and a Paycheck: Meet & Greet With Author Chris Farrell

Monday, May 20, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Members–$15 & Guests–$25 (includes a copy of the book). To register, please click here or call the Village office at 773.248.8700.

Chris Farrell, journalist, senior economics contributor for public radio’s Marketplace, and author of Unretirement, continues to challenge our perception of what retirement looks like. His new book, Purpose and a Paycheck: Finding Meaning, Money, and Happiness in the Second Half of Life, tells the compelling story of how a growing movement of older entrepreneurs and part-time workers are creating a stronger and more vibrant economy. Join us for this book talk (presentation at 5:45) and meet and greet with Chris Farrell, and learn more about the rapidly shifting attitudes toward older workers. Light appetizers to be served.

Note: The Village Chicago is a membership organization, but a limited number of spots for this program are reserved for guests on a first come, first serve basis. If this event becomes over-subscribed, members will receive priority and non-members will be notified and reimbursed their full payment and added to the wait list.
