Living Well at Every Age

Oct 6, 2022, 11:00 am - 2:00 pm


Íeda Jónasdóttir Herman lived a full and active life into her nineties, fueled by a philosophy that it’s never too late to try new things. In this live virtual program, Íeda’s daughter, author Heidi Herman, will talk about her mom’s year of 93 new things and Ieda’s photo journal book, Never Too Late, which chronicles of those experiences.

Heidi will also discuss her own book, On With the Butter!, a motivational book inspired by her mother’s example. It’s a book about active aging that’s been hailed by US Review of Books as a “fresh perspective on living well at any age” and called “an upbeat and sincere primer on living one’s best life” by Kirkus Review. Both books are available to patrons in the library’s collection.

After a thirty-year career in telecommunications, Heidi retired to pursue her love of storytelling and writing. She has been inspired by Icelandic culture and has published six books in four genres, including an American/Icelandic cookbook, children’s folklore, and women’s fiction. She is a member of the Arizona Author’s Association, the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers, Women Fiction Writers Association, Arizona Authors Association, and the Non-Fiction Authors Association.
