Katy Butler, Best-Selling Auther Talks about her New Book, “Knocking on Heaven’s Door”
Event is hosted by The Conversation Project
Location: Congregation Har Hashem
Address: 3950 Baseline Road, Boulder, CO 80303
“With a reporter’s skill, a poet’s eye, and a daughter’s love, Butler explores what happens when our terror of death collides with the technological imperatives of modern medicine. Her provocative thesis is that advanced medicine, in its single-minded pursuit of maximum longevity, often creates more suffering than it prevents. Butler lays bare the tangled web of technology, medicine, and commerce that modern dying has become and chronicles the rise of Slow Medicine, a growing movement that promotes care over cure.” – Amazon
Katy’s talk is from 7PM to 8PM. Book signing and refreshments is from 8:30PM to 9:30PM. Registration required. Register on our website for $15. Register at the door for $25. For information, call 303-442-0436, x 133
