SOLD OUT: Politics and Prose and Sixth & I Present ATUL GAWANDE
In his bestselling BEING MORTAL, Atul Gawande, a surgeon at Brigham and Womens Hospital, frequent media commentator, and the author of books including THE CHECKLIST MANIFESTO, confronts the role of medicine in the end of life. Drawing on both his medical practice and his own father's sickness, Gawande proposes ways for doctors to emphasize comfort, independence, and quality of life in treating aging and terminally ill patients. He writes about the role of health care for patients who cannot be healed, proposes ways to turn elder-care facilities into true homes, and explores the physiology of aging. Now available in paperback, this book offers a valuable meditation on the human condition for people of all ages.

Gawande will be in conversation with Sarah Kliff, one of the country's leading health policy journalists. She has spent seven years chronicling Washington's battle over the Affordable Care Act and is currently a senior policy correspondent at Vox.
