Against Death: 35 Essays on Living – Calgary Launch

September 26, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm MDT

Free

Please join us for the Calgary launch of Against Death: 35 Essays on Living, featuring readings by Elee Kraljii Gardiner, Nikki Reimer and guests.

Against Death: 35 Essays On Living articulates the personal experiences of each author’s “near-deathness,” utilizing fresh and inventive language to represent what “magical thinking” proposes. These pieces are incisive and articulate, avoiding the usual platitudes, feel-good bromides, and pep talks associated with near-death encounters. The writing moves past the sob story and confronts the tough circumstance of facing death with truth and compassion, no matter how ugly or (in)convenient. http://www.anvilpress.com/Books/against-death
