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.
