Ryan North is the New York Times-bestselling and Eisner-winning author of How To Invent Everything: A Survival Guide for the Stranded Time Traveller, the semi-fictional graphic novel adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-Five, and the writer for the so-far-fictional Unbeatable Squirrel Girl series for Marvel. He's also twice collaborated with William Shakespeare on choose-your-own-path versions of his plays. But he's never made an advance care plan.
