Death Cafes are opportunities to explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences about death and dying with other people just like yourself in a comfortable, agenda-free environment. Death Cafes began in Europe about ten years ago and have been growing in popularity here in the United States as we are beginning to understand that talking about death can make us more able to make thoughtful, empowered decisions regarding life, death, and the dying process. The Loudoun County Public Library System has been sponsoring Death Cafes for the past year throughout the branches in the library system. Each one has been completely unique but the conversations are always intriguing and inspiring. Plus, there is usually some laughter and always tea and cake! If you think you may be interested but are hesitating, please join us! For more information about Death Cafes, please visit www.deathcafe.com.
