Meredith Maran had a pretty sweet life as a free-lance writer. 

Then, in a rather short window of time, she lost her best friend, her marriage and her life savings. 

So, at age 60, she started over: new city, new job, new friends, new lovers. 

She shows off her new life in the memoir The New Old Me.  Meredith Maran drops by to share the highlights, prior to an Ashland appearance, Wednesday night, May 31.
