Lori is a lifelong learner who is a shining example of "you don’t have to be twenty-one to have your whole life ahead of you!" Curiosity, talent, and an instinct to heal herself lead her to learn to tap dance in her 70s – which led to an audition for America’s Got Talent! With tap dancing under her belt she decided to pursue a writing career in her late 80s. Two of her essays were included in Chicken Soup for the Soul, and her new memoir Dare to Live is funny, poignant and adventurous — just like the woman herself. Lori’s story will inspire you to live your best life and reminds us all, "there’s always something more” no matter your age.
