Celebrated historian Nell Irvin Painter turned to painting after her retirement from Princeton University. She shares her second act in “Old in Art School: A Memoir of Starting Over.” (Counterpoint Press, June 19) This insightful memoir reminds us that it’s never too late to start over and learn something else. Painter, a sharp observer of human behavior, explores the themes of women, artists, beauty and self-worth. She’s also the author of “Standing at Armageddon,” “Sojourner Truth” and the New York Times bestseller “The History of White People.”
