About this Death Cafe

This will be our 11th Death Cafe at the Belljar Cafe. As before, it is open to persons of all ages, from students and 20-somethings to seniors, and we always have a range of ages. It is an opportunity to discuss any aspect of death and dying that is of interest to you. We will be sitting in small groups and will change groups mid-way through the evening. There is no pre-set agenda, and the small group will determine what gets talked about. Come on your own, or bring a friend.  We have a $5 suggested donation to the cafe for the space. Space is limited, so RSVP is necessary.
