Join us on the second Tuesday of the month.

We will be discussing The Death of Ivan Ilyich by Leo Tolstoy. Tolstoy’s most famous novella is an intense and moving examination of death and the possibilities of redemption. Ivan Ilyich is a middle-aged man who has spent his life focused on his career as a bureaucrat and emotionally detached from his wife and children. After an accident he finds himself on the brink of an untimely death, which he sees as a terrible injustice. Face to face with his mortality, Ivan begins to question everything he has believed about the meaning of life. 

Copies of the book are available at the library. Ebook and eaudiobook copies are always available through Hoopla. Additionally, you can find copies through Digital Library of Illinois or the Libby app.

Registration will close two hours before the program begins and registrants will receive a link to join shortly thereafter.

Please email community@wilmettelibrary.info with any questions about how to access the program via Zoom.
