Presented by Wendy Nathan, B.Sc., CMC is a Certified Care Manager with Aging Wisdom.
Many of us have been there for parents and other loved ones as they have grown older. It is often through these experiences that we begin to recognize the wisdom of planning-ahead for our own health, legal considerations, financial concerns, housing and family issues as we age.
This seminar with a Certified Care Manager will help you to draft a road map for anticipating and planning for your own aging journey.

HOW FIRES END is set in post-World War II Sicily and mid-eighties America, chronicles the long legacy of a single act of violence, illustrating along the way the complicated dynamics of familial bonds, the devastating effects of war upon childhoods, and the inextricable nature of personal and political identities. The novel offers a striking portrait of a single family, but also interrogates traditional and troubling definitions of masculinity and the powerful allure of fascism. HOW FIRES END is a story of Sicilian Americans, but it is not a mafia tale. It is a story of World War II, but it is not an account of military conflict. It is, instead, a heartfelt examination of the complex relationship between immigrant parents and their first-generation children.
Marco Rafalà is a first-generation Sicilian American novelist, musician, and writer for award-winning tabletop role-playing games. He earned his MFA in Fiction from The New School and is a cocurator of the Guerrilla Lit Reading Series in New York City. He was born in Middletown, Connecticut, he now lives in Brooklyn, HOW FIRES END is his debut novel.
