Book Group Meeting: 'The Inevitable: Dispatches on the Right to Die' by Katie Engelhart

Humanist Society Scotland Book Group meets quarterly online via Zoom. New members are always welcome! We don’t charge for participation, but you do need to register in advance.


We will be discussing ‘The Inevitable: Dispatches on the Right to Die’ by award-winning journalist Katie Engelhart, a compelling and beautifully written investigation into the Right to Die movement exploring a delicate topic that has the potential to be divisive. 


"A remarkably nuanced, empathetic, and well-crafted work of journalism, [The Inevitable] explores what might be called the right-to-die underground, a world of people who wonder why a medical system that can do so much to try to extend their lives can do so little to help them end those lives in a peaceful and painless way." - Brooke Jarvis, The New Yorker


Spanning North America, Europe, and Australia, The Inevitable offers a deeply reported and fearless look at a morally tangled subject. It introduces readers to ordinary people who are fighting to find dignity and authenticity in the final hours of their lives.


This book should be available from all your usual book suppliers or local library. Another way to support independent bookshops is to order through
