This group usually meets on the First Friday of each month. However, due to the holiday, will meet on July 12, 11 a.m. Bennett Classroom. The book for discussion is When Breath Becomes Air, by Paul Kalanithi.
(Personal memoir. Review: ****+ Good Reads) What makes life worth living in the face of death? What do you do when the future, no longer a ladder toward your goals in life, flattens out into a perpetual present? What does it mean to have a child, to nurture a new life as another fades away? These are some of the questions Kalanithi wrestles with in this profoundly moving, exquisitely observed memoir. Paul Kalanithi died in March 2015, while working on this book, yet his words live on as a guide and a gift to us all.
