In this friendly and relaxed exploration, they’ll open up the conversation about grief – in all its forms – by delving into literature’s rich tradition of writing about loss.
The team at The Reader invite you to share in this supportive and relaxed session where the subjects of grief and loss aren’t taboo.
The grief that follows loss is one of the more challenging problems of life. We naturally grieve for the loss of a person or a pet we have loved, but are there other more hidden forms of grief – the loss of an idea about the future or the past, for example, or the sense of ourselves as we change. What can grief give us, if anything? How can we best negotiate our way through it?
All are welcome. Join via Zoom from the comfort of your own surroundings. You choose whether you want to read, talk or just listen along.
…any sensible person knows grief is a long-term project. I refuse to rush. The pain that is thrust upon us let no man slow or speed or fix.’ – from Grief is the thing with Feathers by Max Porter.
