Faye Berger (BS Home Economics, 1997) has published Gumption, lessons on old age, loneliness, and a hotdish (North Star Press, 2010), a memoir of The Gang, her father's old guy social network, in rural Minnesota from 1986-96. The focus of The Gang was simply to share a meal. Limited to the six that fit in a car, The Gang had a reputation at home, in the neighboring counties, and even on a cruise boat in the Caribbean. Berger shares the life and times of The Gang and what happens when a woman enters the picture and tries to stir the mix. Gumption explores the resiliency and resourcefulness of these old guys, an often over-looked segment of the elderly population.
