Book Discussion Series: Being Mortal by Atul Gawande, M.D.

Book Discussion series, no prior reading necessary!

 Tuesday, September 26, 2017, 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.

Vashon Bookshop, 17612 Vashon Hwy SW.

Gawande is a surgeon, author, staff writer for The New Yorker and a professor at Harvard Medical School.  He explores how our medical model creates suffering in aging and death and shares research as well as powerful stories of his own family and patients.  Being Mortal shows how the ultimate goal is not a good death but a good life –to the very end.

Join us for a lively discussion of these important topics and how they are impacting our own lives, and our community on Vashon.

Led by Catherine Henderson and Colleen Brooks

Later Event: September 30
