Friends and Readers Book Club

Monday, June 11th, 4 p.m. Join us at the library for the Friends and Readers Book Club! This month's title will be When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi.  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.  "When Breath Becomes Air is an unforgettable, life-affirming reflection on the challenge of facing death and on the relationship between doctor and patient, from a brillian writer who become both.

 Copies are available to pick up at the Wyocena Library
