A DEATH IN CHICAGO, 1972: ELIZABETH KÜBLER-ROSS AND MY FAMILY | Pat Arnow
Pat Arnow is a photographer, writer, and more lately, a cartoonist in New York. She often writes and draws stories about death. “Posey’s Plan: A Memoir of a Timely Death” is the story of a reclusive woman in a big high rise and a small, informal community that made it possible for her to choose her own end. Arnow presented “Posey’s Plan” at the Comics and Medicine conference in 2018. She also exhibited illustrations from it and spoke on a comics panel at Reimagining Death in New York—a death panel! With “A Death in Chicago, 1972,” she tells the story of her father’s dying, which involved Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, because it’s a personal story from a time of momentous change in the way we think about death.
