NORTH SALEM,, N.Y. -- Prominent financial journalist Jane Bryant Quinn , whose latest book, "How to Make Your Money Last: The Indispensable Retirement Guide," was recently released, spoke about it at Ruth Keeler Memorial Library on Sunday.
The best-selling author, a former Chappaqua and North Salem resident and the Founding Editorial Director of Daily Voice, says the book has been on her mind for several years.
"There are tons of books on retirement lifestyle advice and lots of books on how to invest in retirement, but there wasn't a book on how to turn whatever savings you have into a reliable income for life," said Quinn, a Poughquag resident.
Her book addresses those concerns, offering ideas and recipes for increasing the income you get from your savings and investments, maintaining that income for life, and simple tools such as index mutual funds and immediate pay annuities.
