It’s big, beautiful and packed with stories, pictures and ideas about energizing daily life in neighborhoods and households. Vibrant Living was written by Carmen Bowman and LaVrene Norton as a how-to guide, but it is also a scrapbook of photos and stories from organizations across the country highlighting the vibrant living that goes on in their homes. From ethnic celebrations to coffee klatch, from tree climbing to a quiet afternoon curled up on the couch, organizations are finding ways to make it possible for elders to live lives full of interest, value, meaning and spontaneity.

We call it a magazine because it has the feel of journalism tempered with storytelling, but it is entirely unlike the average newsstand publication.
