April 11, 2023 , 7:00pm 8:00pm

book cover

It can be difficult to engage in conversations about death: Will I say the wrong thing? Am I going to offend someone? Who wants to discuss morbid stuff anyway? Green-Wood’s book club, Mortality & Me, helps make death, dying, and end-of-life matters easier to talk about through compelling books that tackle these topics head on.

For this book club session we will be discussing two children’s books about grief and loss, Saying Goodbye by Alejandra Pozzo Stevenson and Cry, Heart, But Never Break by Glenn Ringtved If you don’t have the books on hand,don’t worry, we’ll be reading them together at the top of the program.

Price: Free. Registration required.
