For anybody in the SF Bay Area interested in planning for their future or helping their parents maintain independence by taking control with D-I-Y (Do It Yourself) community creation: Join me tonight at Swan's for this event with the author, based on his recent studies on the evolution of Cohousing in Denmark. Chuck will be speaking next month at the Berkeley Hillside Club, and will be organizing events at a variety of cohousing and senior communities, conferences, and other opportunities. Raines P.S. I'll also be showing my studio loft unit for sale there during the event, in case anybody would like a peek. - What: Senior Cohousing book release/discussion with the author When: Monday, August 8 at 8:00PM Where: Swan's Market Cohousing ( http://www.swansway.com/ ) 930 Clay Street Oakland CA 94607 (510) 315-0431 Optional book purchase: $29.95 per copy Event Description: Meet Charles Durrett, author of the new book Senior Cohousing: A Community Approach to Independent Living http://tinyurl.com/7bdjw pick up the book, get it inscribed, and talk about what cohousing and independent living means to you! Learn how thousands of people around the world have taken action to create their own communities and maintain their independence as they "age in place", building support systems where they are in control, with the freedom and flexibility they need. Connect with others and get inspired to start working on intergenerational or age-specific cohousing where you want to live. Charles (Chuck) Durrett has designed over thirty cohousing communities in North America and has consulted on many more around the world. Charles Durrett has also co-authored (with his wife Katie McCamant) Cohousing: A Contemporary Approach to Housing Ourselves, the book that introduced the concept of cohousing to the United States. He currently lives in Nevada City, California, while his new cohousing community is being constructed (Nevada City Cohousing, which includes 17 seniors). He lived in Doyle Street Cohousing with his family for 12 years. As credited in the Oxford English Dictionary, Charles with his wife coined the word "cohousing".
