Our Vice President, and Head of Programming, Bill Walker will be leading a book club on The Denial of Death by Ernest Becker.
This book club will take place on Tuesdays via Zoom, from 6pm-8pm, with one in-person meeting on Saturday, September 30th from 1pm - 3pm at the Crowfoot Library where we will have the opportunity to get to know each other a bit better before the zoom meetings.
About the book:
"Winner of the Pulitzer prize in 1974 and the culmination of a life's work, The Denial of Death is Ernest Becker's brilliant and impassioned answer to the "why" of human existence. In bold contrast to the predominant Freudian school of thought, Becker tackles the problem of the vital lie -- man's refusal to acknowledge his own mortality. In doing so, he sheds new light on the nature of humanity and issues a call to life and its living that still resonates more than twenty years after its writing."
