Understanding End-of-Life Matters with the NNLM Reading Club: It’s difficult to talk about, even scary. Important things usually are. And deciding what to do about that transition between life and death – how to make it more comfortable, what to do afterwards – is so very important, to our loved ones and ourselves. It involves issues not only of health, but of spirituality, compassion and trust. Whether your focus of concern is on a family member or yourself, this April the NNLM Reading Club suggests three books that may help with your understanding of end-of-life matters and those conversations you probably have been putting off. Visit the NNLM Reading Club for discussion guides to these titles and other useful information.
