The aging of America in all its variety — from work and retirement to dating and divorce, from older adults’ involvement in politics and elections to end-of-life choices — that’s NPR correspondent Ina Jaffe’s beat.

And now the nationally renowned journalist is coming to Florida State University at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 19, at Ruby Diamond Concert Hall, for a presentation sponsored by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute in honor of the 25th anniversary of lifelong learning at FSU. The event is open to the public.

Among her topics: the magic of lifelong learning.

Jaffe has an ongoing spot on Weekend Edition with Scott Simon called “1 in 5” where she discusses issues relevant to the one-fifth of the U.S. population that will be 65 years old or more by 2030.

The Leon Anderson Jazz Ensemble will provide pre-event music.

Tickets are $15 and available online at, by phone at 850-644-6500 or at the Ticket Office, 540 W. Call St. on the FSU campus.

Parking will be available on the FSU campus.
