Longtime journalist Julie Lipkin will be the guest at Falmouth Death Cafe later this month with a talk about obituaries: how they originated and have evolved over the years, how much they generally cost, how they are usually handled, and how to go about writing them.
The discussion will be held on Tuesday, September 16, at 6:30 PM at First Congregational Church of Falmouth on the Village Green. Small-group facilitated conversation will follow the presentation, with the session wrapping up by 8:30 PM. The event is hosted and facilitated by Waquoit Congregational and First Congregational churches and the Funeral Consumers Alliance of Eastern Massachusetts.
Questions can be directed to Heather Massey at 508-457-1612.
Death Cafe is an international movement started in Europe to encourage people to talk about the taboo subject of death. It is not a support group, nor a counseling session, nor a workshop, and it is not affiliated with any religious organization; rather, community members gather in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere, to share a respectful, engaging, thought-provoking and life-affirming conversation with the objective of increasing awareness of death.
