Join us for a discussion of the community read of The Bright Hour: A Memoir of Living and Dying by Nina Riggs. In 2015, at the age of thirty-eight, Greensboro resident Nina Riggs, the great-great-great-granddaughter of Ralph Waldo Emerson, was diagnosed with breast cancer. She tells her story in a series of absurd, poignant and often hilarious vignettes drawn from a life that has 'no real future or arc left to it, yet still goes on as if it does. A guest speaker from Hospice will attend. Please contact Ronald Headen at 336-373-2925 or email to sign up and obtain a copy of the book.
