One Book: "Frontline: Being Mortal" Film Screening & Discussion

2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Main Library
Second Floor - Veterans Room
Join us for a screening and discussion of "Being Mortal," a PBS Frontline film that originally aired in 2015.  

From PBS: The film follows writer and surgeon Atul Gawande as he explores the relationships doctors have with patients who are nearing the end of life. It investigates the practice of caring for the dying, and shows how doctors, Gawande included, are often remarkably untrained, ill-suited, and uncomfortable talking about chronic illness and death with their patients.

Gawande is also the author of the book "Being Mortal," this summer's One Book, One Oak Park selection. 

After the screening, a representative from Be@Ease will facilitate group discussion of the film. Be@Ease is a suburban Chicago nonprofit organization that focuses on family-friendly advanced care planning.

Learn more about summer events related to One Book, One Oak Park, the library's community-wide reading program offering opportunities to connect on topics that matter through one great title.
