Discuss death with a friendly group. Ages 16+.This is an in-person program. Masks are recommended at all in-person library events.
Free of agenda or ideology, the aim is to increase awareness of death to help people make the most of their (finite) lives. Not a grief support group, it is no more and no less than a friendly group discussing death. Facilitated by Cheryl Adcox RN, an End of Life Doula and experienced Death Café facilitator. Death Cafés are a growing international movement of people gathering together in a relaxed and safe setting to eat tasty treats, drink tea, and discuss death.
