Jeanette Miller, herself a resident of Amherst’s Clark House, is dedicated to the permanent dismantling of the myths, stereotypes, and false information directed toward women over the age of sixty. Women of Clark House: The Art of Positive Aging, based on interviews and observation, is a testament to the Clark House women who are breaking society-generated constraints in aging, and finding possibilities and joys in their lives. Miller, a retired pediatric physical therapist, is also a nationally recognized soprano and performer of, and authority on, the American spiritual, a true national art form and spiritual heritage of all Americans.
“An interesting, informative, and well-written series of interviews with some of the impressive women who live at Clark House. I thoroughly enjoyed it!” Ellen Story, State Representative, Third Hampshire District
