Kerry Egan '95 on PBS This Week

Washington and Lee alumna Kerry Egan, of the Class of 1995, was featured on the April 26, 2012, edition of the PBS series “Religion and Ethics Newsweekly.”

Watch the video on the PBS website.

Kerry is a hospice chaplain in Massachusetts. In January, we wrote about her remarkable essay about death and dying on CNN.com. That essay resulted in more than 4,000 comments, pro and con.

On the PBS show, she discussed discussing how she works with dying patients. You can see a preview of the show on the “Religion and Ethics Newsweekly” website.

Kerry is the author of the 2004 book, “Fumbling: A Journey of Love, Adventure, and Renewal on the Camino de Santiago,” a journal of her experiences with her then boyfriend (now husband), Alex Ruskell, of the Class of 1994, on the pilgrimage route in southern France and northern Spain known as Camino de Santiago, or the Way of St. James.
