This month, we will be reading and discussing Smoke Gets in Your Eyes and Other Lessons from the Crematory, Caitlin Doughty’s best-selling memoir about her transition from medieval historian to undertaker, the cultural history of handling the dead in America, and what it means for the way we live and die today.

Obituary-Writing Workshop

Online Interactive Workshop


Tuesday, June 8, 2021, 8:30-9:30 pm Eastern

Online

Almost anyone can write a death notice that lists dates, survivors, and an accomplishment or two. But what if you took time to reflect on what has been important in your life and how you want to be remembered and crafted a narrative in service of that?

Join this hands-on obituary-writing workshop to develop thoughts on how you might approach this storytelling ritual. After looking at sample obituaries with various narrative structures, you will try some brief exercises. Leave with a draft of your memorialization, to slip into your end of life planning binder for eventual use or to return to for frequent updating.

Participants may choose, alternatively, to write an obituary for a loved one (either living or deceased).

Workshop Fee: $15

Workshop Leader: Leslie Rowley

 

Upon registering, participants will receive a Zoom link and telephone call-in number. (A paid Zoom account is not required, though the Zoom platform must be downloaded on your device in order to use video.) Please note: If you do not receive the ZOOM link by June 7 (in your inbox or your junk mail), please email info@hereafterpartners.com

Book Jacket for Joan Didion's The Year of Magical Thinking

Every other month on the third Tuesday, join friends old and new to discuss a work of non-fiction, memoir, or maybe even fiction on a topic that is related to aging, caregiving, death, and dying.

This month, we will be reading and discussing The Year of Magical Thinking, the National Book Award-winning memoir by Joan Didion brought about by the sudden death of her husband just prior to their fortieth anniversary and “about grief, about the ways in which people do and do not deal with the fact that life ends, about the shallowness of sanity, about life itself.” RSVP to get the link to the free online discussion.
