Mr. Terkel talked with Ms. Lewis about his most recent book, Will the Circle Be Unbroken?: Reflections on Death, Rebirth, and Hunger for a Faith, published by The New Press. The book is a collection of interviews with sixty people on the subject of death. Those interviewed ranged from artists to members of the clergy to a death-row parolee. Mr. Terkel talked about his own encounters with death both as a child and as an adult and reflected on the death of his father in 1931 and his wife’s death in 1999. He answered questions from members of the audience. Some of the book’s interviewees were in attendance at the event. Ms. Lewis is the author of Hospital and A Totally Alien Life-Form: Teenagers. close
