Death Becomes Us - Event Cover Photo.png

This month's theme is "Death Becomes Us." We'll discuss readings that get us to think about how families talk about death (or don't!) and how they behave toward each other at the end of life. 

Reading List

- Excerpt from Roz Chast's Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant.
- Holland's "A Meditation on Death and Aging"
- Poems by Hal Sirowitz, Chen Chen, Alan Shapiro, and May Swenson.
