Eden Mills Writers’ Festival – Panel: On Being Alive
August 13, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
EMWF In Your Own Backyard Online Series
Presenters: Dakshana Bascaramurty, This is Not the End of Me, John Gould, The End of Me, and Ray Robertson, How to Die: A Book About Being Alive
Host: Steven W. Beattie, Quill and Quire
Contemplating one’s mortality can be difficult – it is a subject we often avoid, despite death being an inevitable part of human existence. But what if honest conversations about death could lead us to live happier and more meaningful lives? The three books featured in this session explore death in different ways, but arrive at similar conclusions: to truly learn what it means to be alive, perhaps we need to gain a clearer understanding of what it means to die.
