The cafes give people a chance to talk about this most important topic that every one of us will at some time experience.

These are not morbid gatherings at all but very alive, engaging, and often hilarious conversations. Talking about death won\u2019t cause you to die. But not talking about it may result in a life less fully lived and appreciated. We hope you join us. You won\u2019t be sorry. All are welcome at this virtual session being held jointly by area libraries; please register by visiting https:\/\/bit. ly\/PYDeathCafe.
