LIVING WITH DEATH IN THE ROOM

In The Bright Hour: A Memoir of Living and Dying, Nina Riggs chronicles her year of Living  “with death in the room,” having received a diagnosis of aggressive, untreatable cancer. Rather than a book about dying, this is a book about “the richness of love and its power to uplift and sustain us.” Come in and find other inspirational books. While you are here, be sure to purchase a bilingual book for the Diocese’s Eastern Shore Latino Ministries.
