[ARCHIVED] Thomas Branigan Memorial Library Presents Virtual Death Cafe

Coffee cup with text "Talk about death, It Won't kill you."

Discussions around death and mortality are often avoided and thought of as depressing or uncomfortable, especially in a COVID world. But death is a natural part of life, no matter the circumstances. Around the globe, many people are starting to have conversations, sometimes philosophical, sometimes practical, about what it means to die. As part of that global conversation, Branigan Library is pleased to offer a Virtual Death Café at 1p.m. on Friday, February 5. 

The Virtual Death Café is an hour-long discussion where people talk about death and their relationships with death. The Café offers a directed discussion with no set agenda and seeks to normalize death and dying; to invite people to consider what death means to them, stripped of negativity and fear. The Death Café is a discussion group rather than a grief support, informational or counseling session. Café participants are invited to share their experiences and thoughts, and participate in an open, honest dialogue about a subject that has long been considered taboo.  

For more information and the Zoom invites to the meeting, contact Brita Sauer at (575) 528-4085 or   

This document can be made available in alternative formats by calling 575/528-4102 (voice) or 575/528-4008 (TTY) If you require an accommodation for a disability to participate in this event, call the library at 575/528-4102 (voice) or 575-528.4008 (TTY) at least 48 hours in advance.
