The Jewish Federation Connecting with Community presents "Don't Die Till You're Dead: Becoming the Protagonist in Your Third Act" with Sam Bittman, founder and curator of The Third Act Project.

Author and playwright Bittman will speak on the process of growing older, positive risk-taking and the potential for spiritual, intellectual and emotional growth as endless.

A video episode from the current season of The Third Act Project: The Five Wise Guys called "Melancholy Baby" has its characters asking, 'how do we old guys make sense of life without libido?'

Sam BIttman is a graduate of Hunter College with a playwriting degree from the University of Iowa. "I’ve worked as a newspaper editor, freelance communication consultant, a PR writer, and as a designer of landscape and garden." He is now principal curator for the Third Act Project, and director/producer of the Five Wise Guys TV series, now in its second season. 

This free program is part of the Federation’s Connecting With Community Series and will be followed by a kosher hot lunch. Lunch is a $2 suggested donation for adults over 60 years of age or $7 for all others. Advance reservations are required for lunch and can be made by calling (413) 442-2200 before 9 a.m. on the day of the program.
