Ramon Prats will select a passage from The Tibetan Book of the Dead about the bardos, or transitory states, between death and rebirth. On June 28th, they are hosting “The Death Defying Power of Reading” by Will Schwalbe. When Will Schwalbe would accompany his mother to her chemotherapy sessions, they devised a way to free them to talk about mortality: they traded books and discussed them. These discussions became the basis for Will Schwalbe’s beloved New York Times bestselling memoir The End of Your Life Book Club. Will is a firm believer in the power of books to change existing lives. The Tibetan Book of the Dead is about the power to change future lives. Compare.
