Après Divorce Events!
Divorce rates are soaring for those over 50. Is there a Tidal Wave of ‘Gray Divorces’?
Join us as we explore this phenomenom and have a lively conversation with Jocelyn Elise Crowley, Ph.D., renowned author of the new ‘Gray Divorce: What We Lose and Gain from Mid-Life Splits’, and Attorney Alan Pickel , family law specialist and former radio show host.
Are the consequences for women different than from men?
What does her research reveal?
What are the legal issues that may differ in a ‘Gray Divorce’?
The evening includes a book signing. Diane’s Books of Greenwich will be providing Jocelyn’s books for sale that night. If you haven’t read it, the findings are amazing.
So put on your highest heels, lipstick and join the conversation while enjoying prosecco and hors d’oeuvres from our culinary chef Claudia Fascenelli.
