People join book clubs for all sorts of reasons — to read more, to meet new people, to get out of the house.

But Mary Ann Schwalbe started a book club with her son for a very different reason: because she was dying of pancreatic cancer.

Her son Will Schwalbe joins Alex to talk about the End of Your Life Book Club he started with his mother, and the two-year journey it took them on.

Guest:


Will Schwalbe, author of "The End of Your Life Book Club"

Will Schwalbe will be speaking at Vroman's Book Store and signing copies of his book at 4 pm on October 21st
