All are welcome to join executive director Lisa Vigil Schattinger and other supporters in reading and discussing What Are You Going Through by Sigrid Nunez.
“The marvel of this novel is that it encompasses so much sadness yet is not grim. For one thing, the narrator’s friend is the type of person who deflects difficulty with sardonic humor. She remarks that she could use a dummies’ guide to dying, and jokes that there were ‘enough bones of contention’ between her and her daughter ‘to make a whole skeleton.'”
