“Death is no more than passing from one room into another. But there’s a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see.” —Helen Keller

Discussing the meaning of death was taboo from culture to culture until 2011, when an Englishman launched the first Death Café. It was not a grief group, but an opportunity to explore members’ thoughts about death and dying. OLLI’s popular Death Café is an engaging discussion group aimed at opening our minds to this taboo subject. All members are invited to select and lead topics, including humorous ones that are meaningful to them and to the class. Remember, if you come to our café, you have a say in our topic selection, so please plan on sharing your feelings and wisdom.

Coordinators: Jeanette Reese, Kellie Simpson and Fritz von Coelln     Emeritus: Hank Smith
