Five New Books on Death and Dying

wordsforwednesday-02-17-16
 
On our first ‘Words for Wednesday’ segment , we feature five new books on death and dying that are worth a look.
 
With organizations like Plaza, supporting end of life conversations, the subjects of death and dying and end of life in America are becoming more mainstream. Evidence of this are in five books recently published. The authors of two were hospice affiliated, one a historian, one a widow, and one an author who was himself dying. See each title and reviews below. Also click here to check out the entire New York Times Book Review.
