Big Questions from Tiny Mortals about Death, a Book Talk & Signing
Every day, funeral director Caitlin Doughty receives dozens of questions about death. What would happen to an astronaut's body if it were pushed out of a space shuttle? Do people poop when they die? Can Grandma have a Viking funeral? Doughty, bestselling author of Smoke Gets In Your Eyes, will discuss and sign Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs?: Big Questions from Tiny Mortals about Death ($25.95 W. W. Norton & Company).
In this book, Doughty blends her mortician's knowledge of the body and the intriguing history behind common misconceptions about corpses to offer factual, hilarious, and candid answers to thirty-five distinctive questions posed by her youngest fans. Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs? shows us that death is science and art, and only by asking questions can we begin to embrace it.
