Local Author David Giffels. Celebrating our wealth of outstanding local authors, this monthly series is presented in partnership with Mac’s Backs-Books on Coventry. In March, David Giffels reads from his heartfelt memoir, Furnishing Eternity: A Father, a Son, a Coffin, and a Measure of Life. With wisdom and humor, Giffels confronts mortality, survives loss, finds resilience in his Midwest roots, and seeks a father's wisdom through an unusual woodworking project—constructing his own coffin. A book signing will follow.
