Retirement author to speak

Staff report

BOTKINS — Eikenberry Retirement Planning has announced a booking signing and discussion of “Hiding in My Pajamas,” the highly-anticipated retirement-planning book by Becky Kueker, at 6 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 6, in the Palazzo, 309 S. Main St., Botkins.

Somewhere between a memoir and a how-to, “Hiding in My Pajamas” is a uniquely refreshing, funny and candid look at the emotional costs of retirement.

A retiree from a successful career as a partner in a commercial architecture firm, Kueker will share her journey as she started a new life, 1,600 miles from her home, while struggling with the emotional stereotypes that deal with retirement and aging. In the book, she exposes the fears and anxieties, along with the marital turbulence and financial challenges, she faced along the way. Utilizing wit and wisdom, she bares her soul and her marriage to encourage retirees not to hang onto the past. Kueker will share her plan for a secure financial and emotional retirement.

Kueker will talk about why financial plans are needed, how to overcome cost-of-living increases and rising health care costs, incapacitation, how retirement affects marriage, and more.

There is no admission charge to the presentation, but advance registration is required. Register at 498-1128.
