Join us for an evening with Nigel Marsh, as he talks about his humorous, thought-provoking, and life-affirming account of turning sixty.

Twenty years ago, Nigel Marsh was an overweight mortgage slave struggling to balance a career, marriage and four children under eight. Until he lost his job.

In Fat, Forty and Fired, Nigel wrote about falling off the corporate hamster wheel and surviving. Now that he’s approaching sixty, he can’t help but notice it’s been a while since he stepped onto that wheel with other hamsters.

In his memoir for his sixth decade on earth, Nigel ponders ageing well, sex, parenting adult children, his parents’ passing, and the secret to his living a happy life. By turns humorous, thought-provoking, poignant and life-affirming, Smart, Stupid and Sixty is a celebration of the third trimester as a privilege to be enjoyed rather than a sentence to be endured.

This event will be followed by a book signing. Books will be available to purchase at the Library.
