Mortality Book Club

In July our Mortality Book Club is reading Lincoln in the Bardo. Nina says of the book: "This is one of the most astonishing works of fiction I've ever read-- an original, unique, possibly perfect novel. It's in the form of an extended conversation mostly among dead (or mostly-dead) people that is simultaneously sad, very funny, profoundly moving, and overflowing with insight into what it means to lose life and lose loved ones. "

Our Mortality Book Club reads and discusses books having to do with the important--but frequently avoided---issues we confront at the end of our lives. Regular book club members include hospital and hospice workers, but also the adult children of aging parents, or just anyone who wonders about the many questions--medical, emotional, social, and philosophical--raised by human mortality. The book club facilitator is Jasmin Tomlins, herself in training as a death doula.
