Film: Terry Pratchett: Choosing to Die

  • Cotuit Library 871 Main Street Cotuit, MA, 02635 United States (map)

As part of our Living Until the End Series, we will be watching the BBC documentary on author Sir Terry Pratchett’s consideration of his death in Choosing to Die:

“In a frank and personal documentary, author Sir Terry Pratchett considers how he might choose to end his life.
Diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2008, Terry wants to know whether he might be able to end his life before his disease takes over. Traveling to the Dignitas Clinic in Switzerland, Terry witnesses first hand the procedures set out for assisted death, and confronts the point at which he would have to take the lethal drug.” (
