Event Details

This event finished on 25 March 2015

The Woods Hole Library will host Two 90 minute Sessions (March 11 and March 25 2015) from 2:30 to 4:00 PM to work together to understand more about Living and Dying.

Intended for anyone who believes that:

• For-warned is For-armed
• Information is best learned when shared
• I will die. So will you.

The Process: Each session will begin with informal and pre-selected readings from the books noted below (or others). The bulk of the session will be spent in facilitated groups of 5-8, with a refreshment break and a whole group discussion at the end.

The first session will raise challenges, and healthy approaches, to living with the many splendored process of aging. The end discussion will set the agenda for the second session.

The second session will address specifics of how we die. The end discussion will raise further work.

• Can’t We Talk about Something More Pleasant?: A Memoir Roz Chast
• Eldercare for Dummies Dr. Rachel Zukerman
