Twenty Conversations to Inspire Hope at the End of Life
A profoundly moving account of an oncology nurse's conversations with the dying.
Janie Brown is an author, a leader in oncology nursing, the founder and executive director of a non-profit organisation called the Callanish Society (callanish.org) in Vancouver, Canada, and a visionary for new global conversations about living, healing, death and dying. Her first book, Radical Acts of Love: How We Find Hope at the End of Life, was published by Canongate in the UK, and by Doubleday in Canada in March 2020, at the start of the global pandemic. Janie was raised in Glasgow by Scottish parents, and emigrated to Canada in 1984. She has worked as an oncology nurse and counsellor in Vancouver for over thirty years.
