Planning for retirement – online

The Women’s Library and the Older Women’s Network are pleased to present a great conversation with the author of “Every Woman’s Guide to Retirement”.

About the author

As a practising lawyer for over 30 years, Alice Mantel worked in diverse
areas of practice – crime, family law and finally elder law. It has given
her a humane perspective of the legal issues that can arise and confidence
in providing practical advice to uncertain readers. Facing retirement
herself, Alice tried to find the answers to her own questions about aged
care, about working and making the right choice with her superannuation.

Before long, Alice realised that others were experiencing the same dilemmas
and she started to research a book that comprehensively covered those
typical concerns.

Alice brings her own life experience as a parent, caring for her own parent
and listening to others to this book. Currently she is still working as a
professional writer as well as volunteering on a community bank board and
participating in a number of community organisations.

There will also be an opportunity to ask Alice questions during the event.
