Mortality Book Club: Kaddish by Leon Wieseltier

  • Bookends & Beginnings 1712 Sherman Avenue Alley #1 Evanston, IL, 60201 United States (map)

The Mortality Book Club at Bookends & Beginnings reads and discusses books having to do with the important--but frequently avoided--issues we confront at the end of our lives. This month’s selection is Kaddish by Leon Wieseltier. Regular book club members include hospital and hospice workers, but also the adult children of aging parents, or just anyone who wonders about the many questions--medical, emotional, social, and philosophical--raised by human mortality. The book club facilitator is Jasmin Tomlins, herself in training as a death doula.
