On Wednesday, March 13, 2024, at 7:00 PM, Professor Teresa Ghilarducci will grace Solid State Books on H Street, Washington, DC, to celebrate the launch of her latest book, "Work Retire Repeat." The event promises an insightful discussion with an interlocutor, shedding light on the dire realities of retirement in the United States and proposing viable solutions. Ghilarducci's book challenges the prevailing narrative around retirement in America, exposing the struggles faced by seniors and the flawed belief that working longer is a straightforward remedy. She critiques the misleading idea that prolonging working years is a panacea, highlighting its adverse effects on health and its discriminatory impact on lower-wage workers. "Work, Retire, Repeat" shares poignant stories of individuals compelled to continue working not out of passion but necessity. Drawing on her expertise as a professor of economics and policy analysis at the New School for Social Research, Ghilarducci offers an alternative vision for retirement. The book advocates for cost-effective changes in retirement financing and management to empower individuals to make genuine choices about their golden years. Attendees at the in-person event will have the opportunity to engage with the author, and autographed copies of the book will be available, emphasizing the significance of reshaping the narrative surrounding retirement in the United States.
