What Does Disrupt Aging Mean to You?
A desert camp at Burning Man? Giving back to another generation? Being a 51-year-old female football hero? We introduce you to new and inspiring Disruptors. Meet "Grubby," a woman who started playing football early on. After nine seasons, hundreds of tackles and a brief retirement, we join her for one final game. Check out some serious age disruptors at Camp Aging Insurrection at the annual Burning Man gathering in Nevada — wisdom huts and survival in the desert. And just what do Lin-Manuel Miranda, JLo and Ricky Martin have in common? It's not what you think. Welcome to our October newsletter for all the Disrupt Aging must-reads!

Reading Is Fundamental...and Disruptive!
Disrupt Aging, by CEO Jo Ann Jenkins, was a highlight of the National Book Festival at the Washington Convention Center in the nation's capital — as was a personal appearance by Jo Ann. The theme, "Let us surprise you," provided an in-depth look at AARP's work in the community. Thousands of festivalgoers of all ages congregated to participate in presentations, games, conversations and — surprise — to learn a lot about breaking age barriers.
Check out Jo Ann's book Disrupt Aging and add your voice to the conversation about what it means to choose the way YOU want to live and age!
