In an effort to better serve the growing community of seniors in the Mercer County region, Capital Health introduced Capital Healthy Living, a new subscription program designed to help seniors enrich their lives, in the comfort of their own homes. For a cost of $50 per month, the Capital Healthy Living subscription service pairs seniors with a Capital Health lifecare manager who arranges services and transportation and schedules appointments.

Even though you know the outcome—that women across the globe came forward to publicly accusde Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault—reading She Said will have you holding your breath. The book chronicles the efforts of The New York Times reporters to convince victims to come forward and beat the clock before Weinstein’s team could squash the report, an event that kicked off the #metoo movement in earnest.
Meg Wolizer has been a literary force for decades. Her recently acclaimed novel, The Wife, was turned into a movie, for which Glenn Close is winning awards. The descriptiveness in her writing is second only to her beguiling characters who stick to the ribs and stay with you long after the final chapter. Her latest book, The Female Persuasion, follows Greer Kadetsky (although she adeptly switches voice to other characters, Faulkner style) as she wades into the Feminist Movement. As it evolves, so too does the heroine, who discovers her own (outside) voice.
