Author Mary Catherine Bateson To Speak At Marylhurst University

For Release: August 25, 2010

American writer and cultural anthropologist Mary Catherine Bateson will speak at Marylhurst University about her book "Composing a Further Life: The Age of Active Wisdom." She will discuss aging as an improvisational art form calling for imagination and willingness to learn. Bateson will share the experiences of men and women—herself included—who have found new meaning and ways to contribute by composing their lives in new patterns.

Bateson graduated from the Brearley School and is the daughter of Margaret Mead and Gregory Bateson. She is a distinguished author in her field with many published monographs. Bateson's books include 'With a Daughter's Eye: A Memoir of Margaret Mead and Gregory Bateson," which is a recounting of her upbringing by two famous parents. Bateson is a fellow of the International Leadership Forum and president of the Institute for Intercultural Studies in New York.
