A Living Persons Guide to Dying 2019-2020

Although death is an inevitable reality of life, we often delay conversations about the topic until after the fact--a habit that can create unnecessary stress or confusion about our end-of-life wishes. Inspired in part by the death cafe recently featured on the NIHs news blog, the Sharon Public Library is seeking to launch an honest, open series of discussions around this important topic. The SPL will help community members to plan and communicate around the topics of death and dying. To that end, we intend to offer a series of speakers and roundtable sessions on issues from digital estate planning to hospice options to different cultural traditions, and beyond.
