How Books Help Us Have Life’s Difficult Conversations
October 12, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
In this personal and heartfelt lecture, Will Schwalbe talks about how books help people, to talk about things too painful to address directly. Sharing the very personal story of his mother’s life, illness, time in hospice and death, Schwalbe talks about the conversations he had with his mother and how books facilitated their dialogue, giving them ways to talk about the things that were most difficult and the most important. This lecture is also filled with humor and joy, as Schwalbe tells how books helped him get to know his mother better in the time they had left. Perfect for hospice and medical organizations.
