Reading and Book Talk with Chloe Benjamin, author of The Immortalists
If you knew the date of your death, how would you live your life?
Chloe Benjamin kicks off Fall for the Book's new spring reading series discussing her novel, The Immortalists. Beginning in 1969 New York City, it follows the four Gold children as they visit a mystical woman who tells them the dates of their deaths. Their prophecies inform the next five decades in their quests for life, love, and immortality. The Immortalists has been chosen as People Magazine's Book of the Week, as the #1 Indie Next Pick for January 2018, and one of Goodreads' most anticipated novels of January 2018.
Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Russo says: “Chloe Benjamin’s The Immortalists is the very best kind of literary thriller, its suspense deriving from characters we care about deeply and surprises that feel embedded in our shared humanity. As profound a meditation on destiny as readers are likely to encounter.”
Benjamin is also the author of The Anatomy of Dreams.
