The Celebrants, by the bestselling author of The Guncle, follows a group of college pals who tragically lost one of their friends during their senior year. After his funeral, they make a pact for the future: to throw each other “living funerals” to celebrate each other’s lives before its too late and remember what it really means to be alive. But this time around, one of the friends is hiding a tragic secret that could change everything. The Celebrants is being touted as a “Big Chill for our times” and we couldn’t agree more. Funny, tender and incredibly moving, it is a life-affirming, powerful ode to friendship that will inspire you to reconnect with your own treasured friends.
