Being With Death: The Art of Dying in the Modern Age

While death seems a taboo subject, most of us hope for a peaceful passing. But how do we make that happen without talking about it? Doctors, patients, hospice workers and more are now trying to slow medicine down, to give us time to reflect, avoid unnecessary interventions, and have compassionate care. Join us for as four Bay Area authors discuss these issues through their personal narratives, with each of their stories going deep into life’s large moments to ask how we can approach the end of life in the best way possible. A Q&A and book sales will follow, with wine available for purchase.
