Dr. Bill Thomas’ experiences as a geriatric physician showed him how an otherwise difficult human process – aging – was made even more so by blatant ageism in our society. His new book, Second Wind: Navigating the Passage to a Slower, Deeper and More Connected Life (March 2014, Simon and Schuster), invites readers to “see beyond the limitations and weaknesses inherent in adulthood and begin an exploration of life beyond adulthood.”
On April 14 from 1-5 pm, Town Hall Seattle will host “The Second Wind Tour”, a non-fiction theatrical performance which is part of a 25-city performance schedule. Act One consists of theatrical monologues featuring Dr. Thomas and Dr. Janet Taylor, a noted consumer health expert. Drs. Thomas and Taylor will also be joined by a series of featured speakers in each city. Act Two will feature a documentary film debut followed by a live musical performance by Samite Mulondo, founder of Musicians for World Harmony.
