Contemporary Evening Book Discussion: The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin
October 17 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
In 1969 New York City’s Lower East Side, word has spread of the arrival of a mystical woman, a traveling psychic who claims to be able to tell anyone the day that they will die, so the Gold children – adolescents on the cusp of self-awareness – sneak out to hear their fortunes. Their prophecies define the next five decades of their lives as the novel probes the line between destiny and choice, reality and illusion, and this world and the next. A sweeping novel of remarkable depth.
Moderated by Professor Mike Boecherer of SCCC
