Lee Reid launches Growing Together: Conversations with Seniors and Youth

Some might think that teens and seniors are miles apart—and then author and retired counsellor Lee Reid decided to take a deeper look, initiating conversations about what one teen described as the “big thorny issues” in life. It turned out there was a lot to talk about, including loneliness, and depression, climate change, gender oppression, the “Me Too” movement, old and young love, and hopes for the future. That fascinating social experiment became this thoughtful, compassionate book that also features photographs by Blaise Enright, whose work is on display in the lounge area November through December.
