Sara Davidson

In 2009, Reb Zalman Schachter-Shalomi asked N.Y. Times best-selling author Sara Davidson to talk with him about "The December Project." He wanted to help people not freak out about dying, and show how getting “up close with mortality” quickens our ability to relish every day. Davidson’s memoir of the two years they spent meeting every week, The December Project, is published by HarperOne. Davidson is also the author of Loose Change, Leap! and Joan: Forty Years of Love, Loss and Friendship with Joan Didion. Read more about her here.
