I Want To Be 60!


Wendy Crisp


Topic: I Want To Be 60!

Be an Empowered Senior and an Elder of your Community and Family.

Guest: Wendy Crisp
Author, Motivator

The author: a book of essays on living in a small town, From the Back Pew, collected from my weekly, award-winning column for the Ferndale Enterprise; and three books of humor, the best-selling 100 Things I’m Not Going to Do Now That I’m over 50 (Penguin/Perigee; 1995; re-issued and revised in 2006); Do As I Say, Not As I Did (Penguin/Perigee; 1997 – a great book with a poor title); and the new When I Grow Up I Want To Be 60 (Penguin/Perigee; May 2006). I’ve also published a historical, fund-raising cookbook for the Ferndale Museum, Old Favorites from Ferndale Kitchens (1994), and I hold the “compilation copyright” for A Distant Thunder (New Chapter Press, 1993), a historical memoir of Anne Topham, the English governess to the daughter of Kaiser Wilhelm.

As the editor of Savvy magazine and the national director of the National Association for Female Executives (NAFE), Wendy appeared, from 1981-1998, on dozens of regional and national television and radio programs; her editorials on social issues have been published in the New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, the Wall Street Journal, and the Oregonian.

A political “child of the ‘60s,” She has been what used to be called a volunteer and is now would be called an “activist” all her adult life. Her nonpaying work has included: eight years on the national board of directors of United Methodist Communications (Nashville, Tennessee), and five years on the board of Institute for Family Development International (San Francisco), a foundation of which she is now president that is dedicated to projects that improve the lives of women and children. Their current projects involve an AIDS orphanage in Malawi and a new program for incarcerated mothers released from California State Correctional Facilities. In years past, she have also been a volunteer at the Bedford Hills (NY) Correctional Facility for Women, at her churches, in local public schools, and for many different community groups. With Sally Dolfini, a lifelong community fundraiser and organizer, she has written The Star-Spangled Spaghetti Car Wash: A Step-by-Step Guide for Community Fundraisers (
