More people are living to a hundred than ever before — twice as many as twenty years ago. And they’re often living quite well – which is why centenarians have become a popular group to study in the science of aging.

Listen here to an audio essay of my quest to meet centenarians in Western Massachusetts and learn the secret to their longevity. Voices of: Arky Markham, Helen Backiel Krok, Althea Cowles and Eva Blondin. (Music by John Townsend.)

This story was first performed as a staged reading at Live Art Magazine in Northampton, MA on Oct. 23, 2015.
