Klamath Basin residents invited to talk about death and dying

Sunday, March 4th 2pm
Downtown Klamath County Library

What do we think about when we think of dying? When we think about our own dying, what do we want most? Death is part of the human experience; all of us have experienced loss, and all of us will die one day. Yet conversations about death and dying are difficult and often avoided even with our closest family members and friends.

This is the focus of “Talking about Dying,” a free conversation with Congregationalist minister and chaplain Fred Grewe on Sunday, March 4th at 2 pm at the downtown Klamath County Library. This program is hosted by the Klamath County Library and sponsored by Oregon Humanities. This conversation provides an opportunity for participants to hear perspectives and ideas from fellow community members.

Facilitators of Talking about Dying discussions are trained professionals working in the fields of chaplaincy, counseling, gerontology, facilitation, and hospice care around Oregon.

Through the Conversation Project, Oregon Humanities offers free programs that engage community members in thoughtful, challenging conversations about ideas critical to our daily lives and our state's future. For more information about this free community discussion, please contact Charla Oppenlander at 541-882-8894 ext. 10 or at coppenlander@klamathlibrary.org

Talking about Dying discussions are made possible thanks to the generous support of the WRG Foundation Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation.
