Meetup Description: I'm delighted to invite you to join me and my friend Rhoda, who is in her 90s, and I've been delighted to work with as part of The Elders' Guild
, to hear from her memoir, "Rhoda: Her First 90 years
". This event, co-sponsored by the Berkeley-Albany YMCA, will feature Rhoda discussing her book and her life.
This historical memoir covers almost nine decades of a life exuberantly lived. A first generation American, born in Chicago in 1918, Rhoda lived and worked through several eras: the early 1920s, the depression years, World War Two and the postwar period in San Francisco in the Fifties and Sixties; Berkeley and the world in the Seventies, Eighties, Nineties, and the Ought years.
Not afraid to change her life every twelve years, Rhoda has been an elementary school teacher, a journalist, a fashion designer/owner of her own business, as well as a leader in the field of training teachers to teach English as a second or foreign language. Working and traveling throughout the world (including a Fulbright to Korea at age 63, and an assistant professorship in China at 67), Rhoda shares her successes and failures in a story of survival.
