‘Hear Me Out’ Dialogue Series: Grief and End-of-Life Care
December 1 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
In partnership with the Free Library of Philadelphia, Northland Public Library, the Coy Public Library of Shippensburg and the Cleve J. Fredricksen Library, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh presents Grief and End-of-Life Care: A ‘Hear Me Out’ Dialogue.
With the constant uptick of global death counts due to COVID-19, grief may feel like an ever-present emotion, not only for those lost but also for lost time and opportunity. For many of us, grief can pool together from multiple sources—whether that be racial inequity, the climate crisis, financial insecurity, or any number of difficulties that we individually and collectively navigate. In this two-hour session, we will partner with Pennsylvanian grief counselors and end-of-life practitioners. Our goal is to hold space for lived experiences of grief, our body’s reactions to grief, our cultural relationship to death, and how to navigate grief collectively.
