Host a “Finish Strong” Book Club!

Bring together your friends, family, neighbors and colleagues to discuss Compassion & Choices President Barbara Coombs Lee’s important new book.
February 12, 2019

A fantastic way to introduce others to Finish Strong: Putting YOUR Priorities First at Life’s End, and to our movement, is to bring them 

together for a book club. “I feel totally inspired by this book,” said Nancy Hoyt, vice chair of Compassion & Choices’ board of directors and active advocate since 2000. “You know when you’ve read a great novel and you want to tell everyone about it? I feel like that about this book. That’s why I did a book club.”

Nancy invited a multigenerational group: her two daughters and son-in-law in their early 30s, a young couple who are 40 and 41, and a couple in their late 60s who Nancy hardly knew. “But he’s a retired MD, so I thought this would be something that would interest them. I loved all the different perspectives.”

Not only did everyone come prepared to discuss the book, but they plan to continue. “We are having a second meeting,” says Nancy. “One of the participants suggested we discuss how each of us left and what changes and alterations we’re making as a result of our reading, and how we can ensure we have a good death. The book evoked all kinds of conversation. It’s just an incredible roadmap. We have to get this in the hands of as many people as possible!”
