The Better Than Therapy Book Club - "Life After Life" by Kate Atkinson

08/21/2013 - 2:00pm - 3:30pm

What if you could live again and again, until you got it right?  Join us as we discuss this Kate Atkinson’s poignant Life After Life.  On a cold and snowy night in 1910, Ursula Todd is born to an English banker and his wife. She dies before she can draw her first breath. On that same cold and snowy night, Ursula Todd is born, lets out a lusty wail, and embarks upon a life that will be, to say the least, unusual. For as she grows, she also dies, repeatedly, in a variety of ways, while the young century marches on towards its second cataclysmic world war. Does Ursula's apparently infinite number of lives give her the power to save the world from its inevitable destiny? And if she can -- will she?

Open to everyone, this book club normally meets on the last Wednesday of each month at 2pm in the boardroom.
