The End of Your Life Book Club

October 13, 2016 |

Love a book that leads you to other books? Me too! A book to try is “The End of Your Life Book Club” by Will Schwalbe.

The book The End of Your Life Book Clubpays tribute to the author’s journey through his mother’s end-of-life cancer treatments.

Mom and son, both avid readers, took to reading like titles and discussing them during chemo sessions, a practice that became part of the fabric of their relationship during an emotional time. The story is a well-written narrative of medical appointments, family gatherings, emotions and all the accompanying decisions. But it’s heart is the shared reading experience — mother and son discussing favorite books, recommending titles and finding the courage to move forward in the realization of how much is revealed of a person through the literature he reads.

The book is thoughtful and filled with titles to scribble down for future exploration.
