July 19   Writing through the Darkness: Easing Your Depression with Paper and Pen will provide practical, supportive guidance in using creative writing to ease symptoms of depression. Our presenter, Elizabeth Maynard Schaefer, Ph.D., has led Stanford University's creative writing program for people with mood disorders since developing the program in 1998. A science writer and mental health advocate, Schaefer recently published a book that shares its title with this talk.
July 26   Building Better Bones with Safe and Effective Exercise will focus on exercises to stop bone loss and prevent fractures, and even build bone. Sherri Betz, physical therapist and Pilates educator, will encourage participants to join in the fun, if only from one's chair. Betz's second edition of The Osteoporosis Exercise Book, plus her four DVDs of exercises for gaining bone strength, reducing low back pain, and healthy pregnancy will be available.
Presenters' books (and DVDs) may be checked out or bought after their talks.
 Authors will be available to sign your purchases.
