Road Scholar participants
AFSA Book Notes Presents a
Master Class
can be seen in communi-
ties throughout the coun-
try—those amazingly hale,
hearty and happy older folks
who are having fun, have a
million friends, are sharp as
tacks and look like they'll live
forever. Their secret is an
active lifestyle that blends
moving, thinking, socializing
and creating.
Through inspirational
stories from active seniors,
supported by the latest
research in the felds of psy-
chology and neuro-science,
Master Class
shows how to
build an enriching lifestyle
on a foundation of favorite
activities. Spiers provides
easy-to-follow charts that
allow readers to break out of
their daily routines by flling
the gaps with a selection
from 25 "Master Activities,"
such as learning a musical
instrument, playing tennis or
volunteering.
Spiers spent his child-
hood in the Foreign Service.
His father, Ronald Spiers,
served as U.S. ambassador
to Turkey, Pakistan and the
Bahamas; assistant secre-
tary of state for intelligence
and research; and under
secretary of State for man-
agement, among many other
assignments.
The
Master Class
program
will take place at AFSA, 2101
E Street NW, Washington,
D.C., at 2 p.m., on May 22.
Books will be available for
purchase. Please RSVP to
