Die Wise: A Night of Grief and Mystery with Stephen Jenkinson

7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 7, eTOWN HALL, 1535 Spruce St., Boulder, 303-443-8696.

An accomplished storyteller and theologian, Stephen Jenkinson comes to Boulder to engage audiences in a conversation about facing our inevitable death. On tour for his new book on the topic, Die Wise: A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul, Jenkinson urges the shifting of society’s perspective of dying, from a fate to be avoided toward an acceptance of death as the ultimate and most meaningful expression of a life well lived. An activist, author and founder of The Orphan Wisdom School, Jenkinson’s exploration is centered on the moral responsibility in death as the last gift you give to all that you love in life.
