Event Description
The Author & Speaker Series: Gabrielle Birkner & Rebecca Soffer

Let's face it: most of us can't handle talking about death. We're awkward and uncertain; we blurt out platitudes or say nothing at all; we send sympathy bouquets whittled out of fruit to the shiva house. Modern Loss: Candid Conversation About Grief. Beginners Welcome., by Gabrielle Birkner and Rebecca Soffer, can help us do better. Inspired by the website that the New York Times hailed as "redefining mourning," this book--praised by Stephen Colbert and Mindy Kaling, among others--offers a roadmap for navigating grief and resilience in the modern age. 

This event features a discussion about the book with the author, followed by a meet-and-greet opportunity.

Pre-purchased books are available to pick-up when you check-in at the event. Books may be personalized at the meet-and-greet. Additional copies of the book can be purchased at the event pending availability.
