Cougars: Elizabethan Style

by Suzanne Calvin

As Monty Python used to say, “And now…for something completely different!”

This month’s book club discussion will focus on “Older Women, Younger Men: New Options for Love and Romance” by Felicia Brings and Susan Winter.

For those “women of a certain age” who don’t rule vast empires and can wiggle their big toe to get any man they choose, this book is a helpful compendium of the rewards and pitfalls of a relationship with a man at least ten years younger.  How common is it?  Well, the “Los Angeles Times” reported a few years back that nearly 24% of American women have married younger men and, for women between the ages of 35 and 44, that number jumps to an incredible 41%!

And, obviously, it’s not just celebrity couples like Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell…or Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins.

Come check out the details at this afternoon’s talk at Barnes & Noble Prestonwood Center located at 5301 Beltline Rd., Dallas, 75254.  The fun starts at 1:00 pm…be sure to bring your anecdotes and opinions!
