Lori Erickson @ Dragonfly Books: NEAR THE EXIT (ADVENTURES WITH THE NOT-SO-GRIM REAPER)
Dragonfly Books welcomes Decorah native and Luther graduate Lori Erickson for an author talk featuring her new book, Near the Exit: Travels with the Not-So-Grim Reaper. Erickson will talk about writing her book and sign books on Thursday, September 5 at 7:00 p.m. at Dragonfly Books.
After her brother died unexpectedly and her mother moved into a dementia-care facility, spiritual travel writer and Episcopal deacon Lori Erickson felt called to a new quest: to face death head-on, with the eye of a tourist and the heart of a pastor. Erickson reflects on mortality--the ways we avoid it, the ways we cope with it, and the ways life is made more precious by accepting it--in places as far away as New Zealand and as close as the nursing home up the street. Through her personal journey and her travels Erickson helps us to see that one of the most life-affirming things we can do is to invite death along for the ride.
