An Evening with Katy Butler


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

A Ministry of Last Things co-hosted event

Katy Butler is the author of Knocking on Heaven's Door, a memoir about the many challenges she faced when she learned that her father had been hospitalized with a stroke. In her book, Ms. Butler describes her father's rapid decline, a process that was very difficult because his wishes were not known. Her mother, on the other hand, gave serious thought to her end-of-life wishes, discussing them with Katy and with her health care providers. The author challenges us to ask the provocative questions: "When does death stop being a curse and become a blessing?" "Where is the line between saving a life and prolonging a dying?"

This event, sponsored by the Conversation Project in Boulder County, will be held at Congregation Har Hashem, 3950 Baseline Road, Boulder, on April 18, from 7:00 - 9:00 pm. Katy will speak, answer questions and be available for refreshments and a book signing afterwards. For more information, contact Jean Abbott jabbott49@icloud.com or Kathy Dansky kxd9@psu.edu. Registration is required. Fee is $15 per person. You are encouraged to register online at theconversationprojectinboulder.org.
