As part of the Saranac Village at Will Rogers’ Road to Retirement Series, on Wednesday, November 4th at 2:00 p.m., at Saranac Village at Will Rogers, Caperton Tissot will speak on the pleasure that writing can bring to retirement years. She will particularly focus on the importance of saving stories to print.
Over the past 11 years, since her own retirement, Caper has written five books and several articles for regional magazines and newspapers. The warm reception her work received opened her eyes to the importance of “…interviewing, writing down and saving the oral histories of our friends and neighbors, both for present and future generations.” Caper will encourage others to undertake similar projects by sharing her experience and suggesting a variety of writing approaches. “Dipping into the world of writing oral histories can be surprisingly rewarding,” she says.

The Road to Retirement Series features programs related to discovering the path others have taken to retirement, serves to further educate and engage communities and teaches about the opportunities, services and resources that can help people retire successfully and happily.
This program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. For information, please call (518) 891-7117.
