BEFORE I LEAVE, Wisdom from the Stories of Six Women Over Eighty

In July of 2000, Jenney Egertson met 80-year-old Maude Kelly. The following day, Jenney had an idea: give Maude and a diverse group of women over the age of 80 a voice by writing a book to capture their stories and advice.

As she interviewed and wrote about her subjects during the fifteen turbulent years that followed, Jenney learned about aging, parenting, facing adversity, navigating systemic racism and sexism, and accepting community.

Before I Leave follows one woman’s journey from the moment her long-buried dream to become a writer re-emerged, through the fear she felt as she moved through middle age, to the sense of calm and acceptance she came to in her sixties. This is a book to be shared across generations as women everywhere continue to reclaim their lives and voices.
