Brio Book Club has spoken, and The Measure by Nikki Erlick was selected. Equal parts unsettling and life affirming, The Measure poses the question, if you had the choice, would you want to know how long you had to live?
When every adult across the globe receives a wooden box with the captivating inscription, “The measure of your life lies within,” the world changes in an instant. People everywhere are faced with the decision of whether or not they want to know how much time they have left, and society has to decide how to deal with those whose days are numbered. Erlick deftly explores the impact on individual relationships and the larger ramifications for global institutions, while keeping the story focused on eight individuals navigating the new status quo.
What would you do? Would you open the box? How would this information change the course of your life and the choices that lie ahead? This will undoubtedly be a very illuminating discussion and how we hope you will join us.
