Please join us for a discussion of When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi. Light refreshments will be served.

"At the age of thirty-six, on the verge of completing a decade's worth of training as a neurosurgeon, Paul Kalanithi was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. One day he was a doctor treating the dying, and the next he was a patient struggling to live. What makes life worth living in the face of death? What do you do when the future 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 with which Kalanithi wrestles in this profoundly moving, exquisitely observed memoir."
