BookWoman BookGroup 2019

BookWoman welcomes new members to our in-store book group.  We generally meet on the 4th Thursday of the month at 7pm. Due to Thanksgiving, we are moving our November meeting to the first Thursday in December.

The November 2019 book pick is From Here to Eternity by Caitlin Doughty!

Fascinated by our pervasive fear of dead bodies, mortician Caitlin Doughty embarks on a global expedition to discover how other cultures care for the dead. From Zoroastrian sky burials to wish-granting Bolivian skulls, she investigates the world’s funerary customs and expands our sense of what it means to treat the dead with dignity. Her account questions the rituals of the American funeral industry―especially chemical embalming―and suggests that the most effective traditions are those that allow mourners to personally attend to the body of the deceased. Exquisitely illustrated by artist Landis Blair, From Here to Eternity is an adventure into the morbid unknown, a fascinating tour through the unique ways people everywhere confront mortality.

We typically meet the fourth Thursday of every month. New members are always welcome. Join us!
