Inner West Council Libraries are hosting author and journalist Amal Awad to discuss her book Fridays With My Folks at Marrickville Library.

In Fridays with my Folks, Amal Awad examines how we as individuals and a society struggle to deal with ageing and illness, prompted by her own changing relationship with her parents. With humour, humanity and honesty, Amal shakes off the taboo surrounding one of the most universal of human experiences.

Australia’s older generation (those aged 65 and over) continues to grow and is projected to more than double by 2057*. Yet, at a time when ageism and health are high on the public’s radar, what we’re not always talking about is how to deal with the anxiety, depression and overall challenges that come with someone you love facing their mortality and a decline in health.

Fridays with my Folks will be available for purchase at the event.
