It might seem strange to say that a novel dealing with end-of-life issues and assisted suicide could be funny, yet that’s what critics are saying of ‘The Flight of the Pickerings,’ the debut novel by Sonoma resident John Grayson Heide. The story revolves around Guy Pickering, who, in an attempt to fulfill a pact he made with his ailing wife to help end her suffering, encounters all those little life problems that keep getting in the way of death. This weekend, Heide reads and speaks during a book launch event that will include a Q&A and refreshments on Friday, June 24, at Occidental Center for the Arts, 3850 Doris Murphy Court, Occidental. 7pm. Free admission. 707.874.9392.
