Join us for a free, thoughtful discussion in “The Parlour,” each first Tuesday of the month via Zoom.
November’s Parlour discussion features Joanne Tubbs Kelly, the author of “Walking Him Home: Helping My Husband Die with Dignity.” It is the kind of book — written from the viewpoint of a spouse — she wishes she’d found on a bookshelf when her husband, Alan, chose to end his suffering using medical aid in dying. When Alan was diagnosed with a rare, fatal, neurogenerative disease, he was clear he wanted to choose his own end-of-life path. Joanne faced an impossible choice: support Alan in his desire to maintain control over the end of his life, or do all she could to keep him alive for as long as possible. Told with honesty, humor, and love, Joanne’s journey challenges us all to revisit our values and beliefs about end-of-life decisions.
