Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction – and we will explore it all! Join us for a discussion of When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi. Copies available at the library, or you can request one here.
A #1 New York Times bestseller and Pulitzer Prize finalist, the Boston Globe describes the book as follows: “Paul Kalanithi’s posthumous memoir, When Breath Becomes Air, possesses the gravity and wisdom of an ancient Greek tragedy. . . . [Kalanithi] delivers his chronicle in austere, beautiful prose. The book brims with insightful reflections on mortality that are especially poignant coming from a trained physician familiar with what lies ahead. . . . The narrative voice is so assured and powerful that you almost expect him to survive his own death and carry on describing what happened to his friends and family after he is gone.”
