Words on Wednesday: "When Breath Becomes Air"
Wednesday, March 15, 2017 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm

In "When Breath Becomes Air", the doctor becomes patient when neurosurgeon Paul is diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. This profoundly moving memoir by Paul Kalanithi reflects on the challenge of mortality, relationship between doctor and patient, husband and wife, father and child. This book was published posthumously so we will tackle not only the author's memoir, but the larger-than-life questions he poses as well.
In Words on Wednesday, expect stimulating conversation about fiction and nonfiction titles selected by Adult & Teen Services librarians.  Copies are available at the Main Library one month before the discussion.
