THINKING AHEAD: An Important Presentation from Marieke Van Donkersgoed

When: Tuesday, January 24th at 5pm 
Where: Apostle Islands Booksellers, 112 Rittenhouse Avenue, Bayfield
Free & open to the public

A number of books recently published, including bestsellers Being Mortal by Atul Gawande and When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi, have addressed directly and indirectly the topic of death and how each of us can plan and make conscious and informed choices about what is inevitable for all of us. We are launching what will be a series of conversations on a wide variety of subjects by inviting local specialists to lead these discussions. We are introducing Marieke Van Donkersgoed to lead the following discussion. THINKING AHEAD gives you a clear outline of the end-of-life care options available and what they mean. It will be one less big thing to worry about and give you and your loved ones peace of mind when other things become much more important.
