"The Art of Dying Well: A Practical Guide to a Good End of Life"

Feb 26, 2019

Our guest is the journalist Katy Butler, whose articles have appeared in The New York Times Magazine, The Best American Science Writing, and The Best American Essays. Her new book, which she tells us about, is "The Art of Dying Well." As noted by Dr. Lucy Kalanithi of the Stanford School of Medicine: "This is a book to devour, discuss, dog-ear, and then revisit as the years pass. Covering matters medical, practical, financial, and spiritual -- and, beautifully, their intersection -- Katy Butler gives wise counsel for the final decades of our 'wild and precious' lives. A crucial addition to the bookshelves of those seeking agency, comfort, and meaning, [this book] is not only about dying. It's about living intentionally and in community."
