A talk about death and dying

Speaker Jenny Sasser.

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 Jennifer Sasser on Thursday Jan. 18, at 4 p.m. at the Cannon Beach History Center and Museum. This program is hosted by the Cannon Beach History Center and Museum 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 and hospice care around Oregon.

Through the Conversation Project, Oregon Humanities offers free programs that engage community members in thoughtful, challenging conversations about critical. For more information about this free community discussion, contact Elaine Trucke at 503-436-9301 or elaine@cbhistory.org.
