Silent Book Club of Death

April 17th , 6:00pm 8:30pm

readers in modern chapel

Do you love to read, but can never seem to find the time or motivation? Set aside this evening to cozy up with a book of your own choice with fellow readers at Green-Wood! 

If you’re passionate about reading and about death, grief, and mortality, the Silent Book Club of Death is for you. We’ll start with a quiet hour of reading alone together—bring your own book on these topics or borrow one from our library—followed by the opportunity for discussion.

Price: Free. Registration required.

The Silent Book Club of Death was born from Silent Book Club (SBC), a global community of readers and introverts, with more than 500 chapters in 50 countries around the world. SBC members gather in public at bars, cafes, bookstores, and libraries, as well as online to read together in quiet camaraderie. Silent Book Club of Death’s  New York chapter is facilitated by Lauren Seeley,  who is a death doula and illustrator, and serves as a logistics specialist at Compassionate Care Pet Aquamation. 

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.
