Let’s Just Say It Wasn’t Pretty — a New Title by a 0ld Senior (Diane Keaton)


indexWith the winding down of Senior’s Month, it should be noted that there are few new titles arriving @ WPL by Senior’s “still doing their thing”!

Let’s Just Say It Wasn’t Pretty is a new title by 68-year-old Diane Keaton,  bestselling author and Academy Award winning actress.

The Toronto Star calls the book “wise, witty, uplifting, the truth, unvarnished —  and very funny”.  Independent minded Keaton chronicles the ups and downs of living and working in a world obsessed with youth and beauty and offers her readers quirky reflections, down to earth advice, and a message of empowerment.

New titles on order @ WPL by fellow Seniors are:
