INDIGO SPOTLIGHT: This month's Spotlight selection is a graceful and inspiring memoir about the stories we share with the people we love.

The End of Your Life Book Club is a moving testimonial of the love between a son and his aging mother as she prepares for the end of her life. Both are great readers who know books can open up worlds and change lives. Will Schwalbe worked for years as an editor at a large publishing house and his mother Mary devoted her life to education and works of charity culminating in the creation of a major public library in Afghanistan. Facing an uncertain time, they form a book club that allows them to share ideas and talk honestly about what matters most to them.

Together they create a keepsake collection of books that any booklover would treasure. These books allow them to speak more easily about difficult subjects: love, mortality, responsibility, ethics and what constitutes a life well lived.

This is a restrained yet powerful story, unsentimental yet involving. It is an urgent reminder of how books and reading can bring us closer together. It will become a book you love and want to share with those closest to you.
