EVENT OVERVIEW:  Diane Rehm, Award-Winning National Public Radio (NPR) Correspondent & Bestselling Author, will be In Conversation with Kaite Mediatore Stover, The Kansas City Public Library, Director of Readers' Services, about Diane's New Hardcover When My Time Comes: Conversations About Whether Those Who Are Dying Should Have the Right to Determine When Life Should End.  This Event is Co-Presented by Rainy Day Books & The Kansas City Public Library.

At the Opening of the Author Event there will be a 4 Minute Video Titled When My Time Comes with Diane Rehm.

ABOUT DIANE REHM:  Diane Rehm Hosted The Diane Rehm Show, Distributed by NPR, from 1979 to 2016, when it had a listening audience of 2.5 Million people.  She now Hosts a Podcast for WAMU-NPR, On My Mind.  She lives in Washington, D.C.

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:  From Diane Rehm, Renowned Radio Host, one of the most trusted voices in the nation, and Bestselling Author: a Book of candor and compassion, addressing the urgent, hotly contested cause of the Right-to-Die movement, of which she is one of our most inspiring champions.  Soon to be a Public Television Documentary of the same name, featuring Diane Rehm.

Through interviews with terminally ill patients, and with physicians, ethicists, spouses, relatives, and representatives of those who vigorously oppose the movement, Diane Rehm gives voice to a broad range of people who are personally linked to the realities of medical aid in dying. The Book presents the fervent arguments, both for and against, that are propelling the current debates across the nation about whether to adopt laws allowing those who are dying to put an end to their suffering.  With characteristic even-handedness, Diane Rehm skillfully shows both sides of the argument, providing the full context for this highly divisive issue.

With a highly personal foreword by John Grisham, When My Time Comes is a response to many misconceptions and misrepresentations of End-of-Life care; it is a call to action, and to conscience, and it is an attempt to heal and soothe our hearts, reminding us that death, too, is an integral part of life.
