“Give a moment of laughter and a good book about Hattie McNair, her fellow residents at the FairAcres Retirement Home and their latest adventure. In her book ‘Older But Wilder,’ author Effie Leland Wilder shows through humor and philosophy what it means to live life to the fullest, no matter your age.” ―Portland Oregonian
“[Effie Wilder] has the writer’s eye and the storyteller’s gift. Her tales are wry, funny, melancholy, philosophical. Her reflections strike a common chord.” ―James Kilpatrick, syndicated columnist
