In 1969, four siblings from the Lower East Side of New York visit a fortune teller, who tells each child the date of their death. Described as “a captivating family saga’ by the New York Times Book Review, The Immortalists, by Chloe Benjamin, follows the siblings both separately and together over the next four decades to see how these revelations affect their choices, their behavior, and their relationships with one another. A sweeping novel of remarkable ambition and depth, The Immortalists probes the line between destiny and choice, reality and illusion, this world and the next. It is a deeply moving testament to the power of story, the nature of belief, and the unrelenting pull of familial bonds. A book discussion encompassing the existential questions raised by this poignant novel will be led by Dr. Kurt Mosser, Associate Professor of Philosophy at University of Dayton.
