On Wednesday, March 25, from 7:00 to 8:30 PM, Minnesota Public Radio is holding a live and free event at the University of St. Thomas to celebrate the publication of We Know How This Ends: Living while Dying.
We Know How This Ends details discoveries by authors Bruce H. Kramer and Cathy Wurzer as they embarked on a journalistic project to document Kramer’s struggle with ALS.
What began as a series of interviews on the subject of a debilitating and terminal illness became a deep mutual understanding and friendship as both authors came to terms with loss and new beginnings. For Kramer, progressive illness brought the loss of his professional life as a dean at the University of St. Thomas, as well as his physical health and autonomy. During the same period, MPR Morning Edition host Cathy Wurzer lost her father to a debilitating battle with dementia. For both, the experiences were life changing and transformative.
Join Kramer and Wurzer with the host of MPR’s Daily Circuit, Kerri Miller, for a conversation about the making of the book, their work together over the years, and the life lessons found in living fully through loss.
