Description

The glory of growing older is the freedom to be more truly ourselves-with age we gain the liberty to pursue bold new endeavors and worry less about what other people think. In this richly illustrated volume, bestselling author and artist Lisa Congdon explores the power of women over the age of forty who are thriving and living life on their own terms. Profiles, interviews, and essays from women-including Vera Wang, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Julia Child, Cheryl Strayed, and many more-who've found creative fulfillment and accomplished great things in the second half of their lives are lavishly illustrated and hand-lettered in Congdon's signature style. The perfect gift for women of all ages, A Glorious Freedom celebrates extraordinary lives and redefines what it means to gain wisdom and maturity.

Review quote

"You cannot capture the beauty of being a woman coming into her own power without art. No one knows that better or does that better than Lisa Congdon. A Glorious Freedom captures the spirit of what it means to show up, be seen, and be free." --Brene Brown, Ph.D., author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller Rising Strong "We hear all the time that women become invisible after 40, but not in this book. Lisa Congdon captures the beauty and humanity of getting older, wiser, and--in many ways--freer." --Andi Zeisler, cofounder Bitch Media
