Synopsis: In one of the most significant social trends of the new century, and the biggest transformation of the American workforce since the women's movement, members of the baby boom generation are inventing a new phase of work.

Encore tells the stories of encore career pioneers who are not content, or affluent enough, to spend their next thirty years on a golf course. These men and women are moving beyond midlife careers yet refusing to phase out or fade away. As they search for a calling in the second half of life and focus on what matters most, these individuals stand to transform the nature of work in America. They also hold the potential to create a society that balances the joys and responsibilities of contribution across the generations—in other words, one that works better for all of us.

About the Author: Marc Freedman, founder and CEO of Civic Ventures, is a frequent commentator in the national media and the author of both Prime Time and The Kindness of Strangers. Freedman spearheaded the creation of The Experience Corps and The Purpose Prize. In 2007 and again in 2008 he was selected by Fast Company as one of the nation's leading social entrepreneurs. He lives in San Francisco.

Photographer Alex Harris traveled across the country to make the portraits in Encore and is currently Professor of the Practice of Public Policy at Duke University and co founder DoubleTake magazine. He lives in Durham, North Carolina.
