Grandma Chic

Kelly Osbourne and Kate Moss can dye their hair gray all they want. Doesn't change the fact that it looks better on a lady who's earned her silver streaks, which signify strength and wisdom rather than a knack for trendiness.

These are the qualities that make old women treasures, according to Dr. Gladys T. McGarey, though we'd be hard-pressed to find opposition. McGarey's book The World Needs Old Ladies straddles humor and seriousness in its message of holistic health and elderly appreciation. McGarey shares the work at 7 p.m. Monday, August 5, at Tempe's Changing Hands Bookstore, 6428 South McClintock Drive. Admission is free with purchase of the book ($18). Visit or call 480-730-0205 for details.
