In 2021, Front Edge Publishing is an active contributor to the New York and Michigan Solutions Journalism Collaborative, which encourages helpful reporting on solutions for America’s more than 50 million caregivers. The organization’s website includes:
- Recent stories published by the collaborative.
- Plus, lots of background about this project. This page explores the history of the Solutions Journalism Network and details the new regional partnerships along with many links for further reading.
Front Edge Publishing’s major contribution is the launch of a new book, developed by dozens of authors from across the U.S. as well as an array of southeast Michigan nonprofit groups and agencies: Now What? A Guide to the Gifts and Challenges of Aging.
“An amazing feature of this volume is its ability to address both caregivers and those in need of support, fellowship and aid to improve quality of life,” Robert J. Wicks, the author of many books about resilience, writes about this new book. “You will be so much better prepared to live a full life more sagely and enjoyably with less unnecessary worry, and guide others in the process as well.”
Lucille Sider, author and psychologist, urges “churches and community groups to give two books to each family, one for the senior and one for a friend or relative, so that an entire family can read this book together.”
Chapters are helpfully divided into 23 topics, encouraging readers to immediately jump into sections that are most relevant. This is “a comprehensive how-to manual for successful aging and living a full life,” writes Wayne Baker of the Center for Positive Organizations at the University of Michigan Ross School of Business.
