Next book group: Oxygen by Carol Cassella

Book group will meet on Thursday, January 19, from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. to discuss Oxygen: A Novel by Carol Cassella.

In Oxygen, Dr. Marie Heaton, an assured anesthesiologist at the top of her game, is forced to face the personal and professional fallout from an operating room disaster. Marie finds herself on the losing end of dollars-and-cents medicine in a malpractice suit, questioning herself, her skills, her colleagues, and her life choices.
–Lalita Tademy, author of Cane Riveroxygen-carol-cassella

With the compassion of Jodi Picoult and the medical realism of Atul Gawande, real-life anesthesiologist Carol Cassella’s riveting national bestseller seamlessly melds compelling women’s fiction and medical drama to create an “involving debut that’s just what the doctor ordered.” (People)

Boston Children’s Hospital personnel are encouraged to join us at the Library at the Longwood Center, in the Media Room (LC 5116), on Thursday, January 19 at 7:30 a.m. to participate in discussion about this book.

Next book group: Wild by Cheryl Strayed

The morning book group will meet on Thursday, December 8, from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. to discuss Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed.

Wild is a powerful, #1 NY Times best-selling memoir that powerfully captures the solo travel of a young woman on the Pacific Coast Trail, forging ahead against all odds.

wildAt twenty-two, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother’s death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life. With no experience or training, driven only by blind will, she would hike more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State—and she would do it alone. This book has been made into a major motion picture starring Reese Witherspoon.

Boston Children’s Hospital personnel are encouraged to join us at the Library at the Longwood Center, in the Media Room (LC 5116), on Thursday, December 8 at 7:30 a.m. to participate in discussion about this book. If you would like to be added to our Book Group email distribution list, please email the Library.
