Hello Caversham Family,
Our fifth book club meeting is scheduled for Monday, September 25th at 7pm, where we will be discussing Atul Gawande's Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End
Oliver Sacks wrote “We have come to medicalize aging, frailty, and death, treating them as if they were just one more clinical problem to overcome. However, it is not only medicine that is needed in one’s declining years but life—a life with meaning, a life as rich and full as possible under the circumstances. Being Mortal is not only wise and deeply moving, it is an essential and insightful book for our times, as one would expect from Atul Gawande, one of our finest physician writers.”
As always, don't worry if you haven't finished by the time the event arrives, everyone is welcome! We'd love to see you and hear your thoughts. This will be live-streamed on Zoom but we'll be here in the store if you want to stop by in person. See you soon!
