A Guide to Delivering a Great Eulogy

Tuesday, October 22, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Event Navigation

 

Rule number one: never wing it. Choosing the right words to memorialize the departed always seems to involve some risk – when do you tailor the truth, and when might someone find healing in the mentioning of alcoholism or abuse? From Mark Antony honoring Julius Caesar to Cher toasting Sonny Bono, there’s much to learn from historic and famous eulogies. Through readings and recordings, Green-Wood death educator Amy Cunningham will lead the discussion of how radical honesty influences eulogies today. You’ll learn how to focus on content and presentation, and a better appreciation of the eulogy as a literary form. Bring your memories and a notebook!
