Change Is Coming

West Tisbury summer resident Jill Shaw Ruddock’s new best-selling book The Second Half of Your Life is part self-help book, part scientific treatise. It takes readers into the world of menopause and afterwards and argues successfully, in case anyone actually wondered, that there is indeed life after “the change.” But see for yourself.

On Monday, August 15 beginning at 5:30 p.m., Ms. Ruddock will read from her book and afterwards open up a discussion with Vineyard women Rose Styron and Laura Roosevelt. A book signing and reception will follow.

The evening is a joint presentation by the Martha’s Vineyard Museum and the Women’s Club and takes place at the Federated Church located at 45 South Summer street in Edgartown.

The cost is $8 for adults, $5 for seniors, and free to members of the Museum and/or the Women’s Club.
