Word Christchurch - Spotlight on Caitlin Doughty



Already proving to be one of the most popular speakers appearing at the festival, Caitlin Doughty talks and writes with wit and wisdom about the one thing that is certain about life: death. Her memoir Smoke Gets in Your Eyes about working in a crematorium is peppered with the history of death in Western culture and other cultures, and is a New York Times bestseller. She will make you look at death in a new light and should not be missed.
