There's nothing ordinary about the Long Before The End Book Group and our moderator, Sophie Glazer.

LBTEBG is modernizing mortality by deconstructing death through the lens of contemporary and classic literature. 

Sophie's recommendations have evolved into a deliciously calculated slight of hand. With each new book, we enter a dialog with end of life, yet inevitably, her selections teach us what we need to know about living. 

If this sounds interesting, it is. Come join us.

Sophie Glazer taught literature at Purdue University and Merrimack College. Over the course of her career, she’s written numerous essays on topics from culture to romance to etiquette; and led study groups in Shakespeare, classical tragedy, Renaissance poetry, Greek mythology, Victorian sensation fiction, women’s studies, film studies, and Yiddish literature. In each of these area of studies she has contemplated the language with which we acknowledge death, and address, or refuse to address, its presence in our lives.
