It’s often difficult to engage in conversations about death: Will I say the wrong thing? Am I going to offend someone? Who wants to talk about that morbid stuff anyway? Green-Wood’s book club, Mortality & Me, will help make death an easier subject to talk about through compelling books that tackle this topic 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.

Price: Free. Registration required.

Both books are designed to gently teach children what happens when a loved one dies and aim to guide them through the process of loss. If you don’t have the books on hand, don’t worry, we’ll be reading them together at the top of the program.

Free. Registration required. Please consider a $10 donation to the Green-Wood Historic Fund so that we can continue to offer free and low-cost programs throughout the year.
