Between the Lines Book Club: Being Mortal, by Atul Gawande

between the lines book club logoOur book club read for June is Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End, by Atul Gawande. You can participate by leaving comments here, or by attending our book club meeting on June 22, 2019 at Arden Dimick Library.

Being Mortal explores the limits of medicine and what it might mean to have a ‘good death.’ This is a powerful and largely optimistic book, although one must be prepared for graphic descriptions of illness.

Want reviews? Here you go! See you on June 22!
