— Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice in association with Black Dog Books of Newton is excited to announce the third book selection in our book club, “Everything Happens for a Reason: And Other Lies I’ve Loved.” We will meet at Black Dog Books on Sunday, August 12, from 12:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.

Kate Bowler is a professor at Duke Divinity School with a modest Christian upbringing, but she specializes in the study of the prosperity gospel, a creed that see fortune as a blessing from god and misfortune as a mark of God’s disapproval. At thirty-five, everything in her life seems to point toward “blessing.” She is thriving in her job, married to her high school sweetheart, and loves life with her newborn son.

Then she is diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer.

New York Times Bestseller – “A meditation on sense-making when there’s no sense to be made, on letting go when we can’t hold on, and on being unafraid even when we’re terrified.” -Lucy Kalanithi.

The book club is open to anyone in the community. Registration is required as space is limited and can be done online at: KarenAnnQuinlanHospice.org/BookClub or by calling 973-383-0115 ext. 145.
