Authors Abby Schneiderman, Adam Seifer and Gene Newman will discuss their new book, “In Case You Get Hit by a Bus: How to Organize Your Life Now for When You’re Not Around Later” in a live, online event at 5 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 7.
Lewes Public Library and Browseabout Books are partnering to offer the free event.
“In Case You Get Hit by a Bus” is a simple, step-by-step program for helping even the most disorganized people take control of their personal details. The authors offer stress-free solutions to get one’s life in order so loved ones won’t have to scramble in case of the unexpected. Readers will learn to navigate sensitive conversations with family, manage passwords and digital access, organize assets and debts, understand medical and legal documents, make plans for heirlooms, and more.
Registration is required at lewes.lib.de.us on the Virtual Programs for Adults page.
Participants also are encouraged to support the authors by purchasing a copy of the book from local independent bookstore Browseabout Books. Each copy purchased comes with an archival bookplate signed by the authors. Orders may be placed online, in person, or by calling the store at 302-226-2665.
“There’s no better time to commit to organizing life details than the start of a new year,” said Lewes Public Library Director Lea Rosell. “We’re pleased to have these authors join us for an important conversation that will benefit readers of all ages by removing the stress associated with planning for the future.”
Schneiderman and Seifer are the co-founders of Everplans, a leading company in digital life planning. Co-author Gene Newman serves as Everplans’ editorial and education director, and has spent his career as a writer, editor and content leader.
