We're pleased to continue the Louisville Chapter of Long Before the End Book Club©. The Long Before the End Book Group uses storytelling and lively discussion to explore courageous living and to transcend fear of the end. Over 700 members around the country participate in the online forum. We will explore larger questions surrounding building a deliberative life.
The Long Before the End Book Group© uses storytelling and lively discussion to explore courageous living and to transcend fear of the end. The March selection is Being Mortal, by Atul Gawande. Medicine has triumphed in modern times, transforming birth, injury, and infectious disease from harrowing to manageable. But in the inevitable condition of aging and death, the goals of medicine seem too frequently to run counter to the interest of the human spirit. Being Mortal captures the stories of everyday people and professionals seeking ways to live fully in life's last stage.
Time says, “Beautifully crafted . . . Being Mortal is a clear-eyed, informative exploration of what growing old means in the 21st century . . . a book I cannot recommend highly enough. This should be mandatory reading for every American. . . . it provides a useful roadmap of what we can and should be doing to make the last years of life meaningful.”
