Fall Book Club Discussion


Co-sponsored by the Stanford Faculty Staff Help Center

You are invited to join us for a virtual book club to discuss thoughts raised by the book: Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End, by Atul Gawande.

Gawande’s book is a compelling read, with stories and research that encourage us to reflect and relate. The author’s craft of writing and personal vulnerability connects us to profound questions. As we read and discuss this book, Gawande’s themes of life and death, standard of care and quality of life, holding on and letting go, help us organize our own thoughts and feelings about end of life and living with meaning.

Please read the book Being Mortal by Atul Gawande on your own in advance and join us online for discussion facilitated by the Stanford Faculty Staff Help Center.
