With many of the events being virtual for the time being, the regional book clubs will be combined for now. Starting this month, the book club meetings will take place on the last Wednesday of every other month at 7pm PDT.
Being Mortal Synopsis:
In his bestselling books, Atul Gawande, a practicing surgeon, has fearlessly revealed the struggles of his profession. Now he examines its ultimate limitations and failures – in his own practices as well as others’ – as life draws to a close. And he discovers how we can do better. He follows a hospice nurse on her rounds, a geriatrician in his clinic, and reformers turning nursing homes upside down. He finds people who show us how to have the hard conversations and how to ensure we never sacrifice what people really care about.
