    Shock of Gray: The Aging of the World's Population by Ted Fishman

    From Amazon "The world’s population is rapidly aging undefined by the year 2030, one billion people will be sixty-five or older. As the ratio of the old to the young grows ever larger, global aging has gone critical: For the first time in history, the number of people over age fifty will be greater than those under age seventeen. Few of us under­stand the resulting massive effects on economies, jobs, and families. Everyone is touched by this issue undefined parents and children, rich and poor, retirees and workers undefined and now veteran jour­nalist Ted C. Fishman masterfully and movingly explains how our world is being altered in ways no one ever expected.

    What happens when too few young people must support older people? How do shrinking families cope with aging loved ones?

    What happens when countries need millions of young workers but lack them? How do compa­nies compete for young workers? Why, exactly, do they shed old workers?

    How are entire industries being both created and destroyed by demographic change? How do communities and countries remake themselves for ever-growing populations of older citizens? Who will suffer? Who will benefit?

    With vivid and witty reporting from American cities and around the world, and through compelling interviews with families, employers, workers, economists, gerontologists, government officials, health-care professionals, corporate executives, and small business owners, Fishman reveals the astonishing and interconnected effects of global aging, and why nations, cultures, and crucial human relationships are changing in this timely, brilliant, and important read."

    The Book Group is open to AAWGT members and their guests.

    Book Group Meeting

    Wednesday November 19th

    Location: Edgewater

    Charity Case: How the Nonprofit Community Can Stand Up for Itself and Really Change the World by Dan Pallotta

    From Amazon "A blueprint for a national leadership movement to transform the way the public thinks about giving.

    Virtually everything our society has been taught about charity is backwards. We deny the social sector the ability to grow because of our short-sighted demand that it send every short-term dollar into direct services. Yet if the sector cannot grow, it can never match the scale of our great social problems. In the face of this dilemma, the sector has remained silent, defenseless, and disorganized. In Charity Case, Pallotta proposes a visionary solution: a Charity Defense Council to re-educate the public and give charities the freedom they need to solve our most pressing social issues.

    • Proposes concrete steps for how a national Charity Defense Council will transform the public understanding of the humanitarian sector, including: building an anti-defamation league and legal defense for the sector, creating a massive national ongoing ad campaign to upgrade public literacy about giving, and ultimately enacting a National Civil Rights Act for Charity and Social Enterprise
    • From Dan Pallotta, renowned builder of social movements and inventor of the multi-day charity event industry (including the AIDS Rides and Breast Cancer 3-Days) that has cumulatively raised over $1.1 billion for critical social causes
    • The hotly-anticipated follow-up to Pallotta’s groundbreaking book Uncharitable

    Grounded in Pallotta’s clear vision and deep social sector experience, Charity Case is a fascinating wake-up call for fixing the culture that thwarts our charities’ ability to change the world."

    This will also be a pot luck dessert night.  Please email the hostess with what you will be bringing.

    The Book Group is open to AAWGT members and their guests.

    The name and address of the hostess will be sent in a confirmation email and reminder three days prior to the meeting.
