And then there's Libby Brahms of South San Francisco. This Gray Panther didn't start writing her poetry until she was 70! After publishing just one chapbook, she won second place in a national contest and then received a grant from the GrayPanthers for her second, The Old Don't Look It, published by Poetry Press of Pleasant Hill. At age 85, Brahms is still writing plus she teaches exercise classes and nutrition to seniors.
