On Tuesday, October 24, 2017, the Columbia Aging Center celebrates the participants in its digital narrative project “Exceeding Expectations” (exceedingexpectations.nyc). 

Since its start, 20 people in their 80s have shared their remarkably different lives with Ruth Finkelstein and Dorian Block’s team through words, photos and video. On Tuesday, Oct. 24, they will meet each other for the first time in New York, and we will reveal what we’ve learned.
