Poised for Retirement
Neighborhood writer Louise Nayer presents her new book

Louise Nayer, retired CCSF instructor, will launch her newest book, Poised for Retirement: Moving from Anxiety to Zen, (Central Recovery Press, 2017). A unique narrative on a unique time offering solace to people nearing retirement, Poised for Retirement is not your parents’ retirement guide. It’s not a financial planning guide. Rather, it’s the story of an ordinary working woman reflecting on her life and career. Written with humor, compassion and poignancy, the book’s poetic prose is also inspirational, and the visualizations and breathing and sleep techniques offered at the end of each chapter are useful and easy to implement. In Poised for Retirement, Louise narrates her own process and achievement of a new and healthier life during a transition you may yourself be contemplating or may already have embarked upon.

Louise will read from her book and lead a discussion.
Refreshments and snacks will be provided, and there will be a raffle of books by some of Louise’s colleagues in the San Francisco Writer’s Grotto.
