Tuesday, September 3, 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm – Immortality: Can We Live Forever and Should We Want To?


Join The Museum of Science at the home of GrandTen, producers of small-batch, craft-distilled spirits, for a gripping exploration of the most universal of human obsessions — the tireless effort to cheat aging and death.

From vampires to the billion-dollar anti-aging industry, our culture is fascinated with the concept of eternal life. In The Book of Immortality: The Science, Belief, and Magic Behind Living Forever, Adam Leith Gollner, the critically acclaimed author of The Fruit Hunters, weaves together religion, science, and mythology. The book delves into a strange array of contemporary and historical characters, cults, religions, and myths all devoted to this primal human pursuit.

Enjoy craft cocktails, selections from The Dining Car food truck, and a chance to take and share animated GIFs of yourself in the Bosco’s enhanced photo booth.  GrandTen Distilling is located at 383 Dorchester Avenue, South Boston, MA 02127.  Special thanks for in-kind support from The Bosco and Yelp.
