Author Charlotte Hackin at Kortman Gallery Feb. 20
From press release
Meet Charlotte Hackin, author of Stay Young to 100, Saturday, Feb. 20, in person upstairs in the Kortman Gallery and see “So What?” an exhibition of new works by Rockford artist R. Scott Long.
Hackin’s Stay Young To 100, a self-help-motivational book, shows you how to overcome personal problems so life will be wise, happy, inspiring, fun, healthy and prosperous.
Hackin wears several hats: author, an international artist, teacher, TV host, and a life coach for 20 years from New York to California at seminars and retreats. She is a member of the Rockford Writers’ Guild and former commissioner for the Rockford Park District.
The book is in its second printing, and the pages are filled with wise sayings, yoga exercises, and organic diets that give you a healthy mind, healthy body and healthy spirit, so you live the best life for the rest of your days.
Hackin, in her 90s, is proof that her plans work…she is vigorous, fun and in the main stream of life. Her 10 Life Lessons are the major focal point what she is all about: “Positive Thinking” is one of the major life lessons.
Why did she write this book? “Because I have a lot of wisdom to pass on,” she said. “I have lived life, my voyage through a bumpy life has taught me much and to understand as Emerson said, ‘Finish each day and be done with it, tomorrow is a new day with its new hopes to waste on yesterdays!’”
The Kortman Gallery is upstairs at J.R. Kortman Center for Design, 107 N. Main St., downtown Rockford. Admission is free and open to the public. For more information, call (815) 968-0123 or visit www.jrkortman.com.
