Quirky without being irreverent, accessible without being glib and challenging without being disturbing, Dying to Know is a collection of conversation starters that lifts the lid on death and helps connect us all a little more.

    The Dying Teach Us How to Live is a touching collection of short stories beautifully written and illustrated by retired hospice social worker, Patricia Acker.
