An Evening with Kerry Egan: Best-Selling Author of On Living
CPMC Pacific Campus
"Spiritual Life in Palliative Care: Meaning Making for Both Patient and Clinician" with Best- Selling Author, Kerry Egan Hospice Chaplain, Acclaimed Author of On Living and Graduate of Harvard Divinity School 5pm wine and cheese reception - 5:30pm Lecture begins *** Open to the public *** Kerry Egan is a hospice chaplain and a graduate of Harvard Divinity School. Her hospice work has been featured on NPR, PBS and CNN, and her essays have appeared in Parents, American Baby, Reader’s Digest, and CNN.com, where they have been read more than two million times. ON LIVING distills the wisdom Kerry Egan gained from her experience working as a chaplain for hospice, and yet as the title suggests, it is not a book about dying. It’s a book about what the dying have to tell the still-living. The stories Egan tells here are profoundly moving and inspirational, and yet somehow unsentimental and “refreshingly unpretentious” (Washington Post). A gifted writer, she approaches the attempt to make sense of the messiness of life experience, including its darker aspects—loss, shame, regret—with riveting narrative and a warm, uplifting tone. "Illuminating, unflinching and ultimately inspiring... A book to treasure.” –People Magazine
TOMORROW, the Pat Conroy Literary Center will host Kerry Egan, author of On Living, for two events! Come join the conversations. "Kerry Egan masters the art of imparting critical life advice without coming off as preachy.…Egan’s empathetic tone is a comfort for both the healthy and the dying.… As the title suggests, this is not just a book about dying. It’s one that will inspire readers to make the most of every day.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) "A book to treasure.”—People Magazine
