Meeting Room (100)

The acclaimed Akron author will discuss his new book, Furnishing Eternity, a powerful memoir about confronting mortality, surviving loss, and finding resilience in one's Midwest roots.

Author David Giffels will visit to discuss his new heartfelt memoir, Furnishing Eternity: A Father, a Son, a Coffin, and a Measure of Life. With wisdom and humor, Giffels shares his own intimate story of grappling with a year bowed by loss and pursuing an unusual woodworking project with his aging father.

His previous books include The Hard Way on Purpose: Essays and Dispatches From the Rust Belt, a New York Times Book Review “Editor’s Choice” and nominee for the PEN/Diamonstein-Spielvogel Award for the Art of the Essay, and the memoir All the Way Home, winner of the Ohioana Book Award.

Books will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of Mac's Backs - Books on Coventry.
