pre-Book Festival Event

Find out who will be visiting the Fox Valley the week of October 7 during the 2019 Fox Cities Book Festival at this visit with author Kimberly C. Paul, author of Bridging the Gap

The author is on a  Live Well Die Well tour empowering people to reclaim death as a human experience, not just a medical event. 

A limited number of books will be available for sale/signing at this free event.  Purchase and reserve your copy now for $25.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Live vicariously through Kimberly C. Paul as she shares personal stories and the life lessons she has learned while working with hospice patients over the last 18 years. Each chapter will inspire you to design your own life and death around what matters most. Kimberly C. Paul will urge you to discard what you thought you knew about death and embrace a new way of thinking when facing the end of life. Her stories emphasize that death and dying are not taboo subjects and encourage you to engage in light-hearted conversations as you face your own death or the passing of a loved one. This innovative and uplifting book is an invitation to move beyond the current standards of what death has come to mean in our culture. Bridging The Gap will empower you to design your death so it reflects your values, likes and dislikes and your personality. Death is not a final destination but a transcendental beginning.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Kimberly C. Paul wants to radically change the way people face end of life, and she’s using her extensive experience as a storyteller to do just that. From the set of Saturday Night Live in New York City, to casting for CBS daytime, Kimberly has spent the last 17 years telling a very different kind of story. As Vice President of Outreach and Communications for a local hospice on the coast of North Carolina, she used a myriad of award-winning marketing strategies to share real stories about death and dying and the keys to making every moment matter.
