Talking about Dying:

an Oregon Humanities Conversation

Sunday, June 3 at 2 p.m.

Join us for a free discussion:

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 Sunday, June 3 at 2 p.m. This program is hosted by the Newport Public Library and sponsored by Oregon Humanities.

Oregon Humanities Through the Conversation Project, Oregon Humanities offers free programs that engage community members in thoughtful, challenging conversations about ideas critical to our daily lives and our state's future.
