Book Review--October 19, 10:00 a.m.--Susan Todd Lounge in the Harrell Center at Lake Junaluska

Dr. Lisa Verges, a geriatric psychiatrist, spiritual director, superb presenter, and genuinely likeable and compassionate human being, will review the book When Breath Becomes Air. You won't want to miss it and neither will your friends, so bring them with you.

Dr. Verges works at MemoryCare, a non-profit clinic in Asheville and Waynesville, providing treatment for individuals with dementia and guidance for their families.  She is also a spiritual director for those who seek meaning amidst the struggles of life.

The book she will review, When Breath Becomes Air, by Paul Kalanithi, is a true story by a physician who faced one of the greatest struggles and challenges life can present.  A gifted writer and a person of strength and insight, his story is a gripping one.
