Death Matters
Host: Didsbury Municipal Library
Description: A bi-monthly gathering on the fourth Thursday of every month. Discuss issues related to death and dying. Death has become a taboo topic, but talking about death is not morbid, nor will it make death arrive faster. Conversations around death and dying reduce fear, clarify misconceptions, provide options and knowledge, and enable us to more fully live until we die. Sept 28 Topic: Green Burials. Nov 23 Topic: Death Café.
Location: Didsbury Library, 2033 - 19th Ave - 6:30 - 8:30 pm
