Contemporary Issues Discussion: Death and Grief

October 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

In the spring of 1846, Nancy Dorsey of Piqua, Ohio, sent a letter to her sister vividly describing the death of her infant daughter and her struggle to come to terms with her loss. All are welcome to a virtual panel discussion of this emotional letter, the universal experiences of death and grief, and healing after a loss. Join in the conversation together with grief counselors, historians, and local community members. Peer counselors from GrieveWell, a local nonprofit that supports people in grief, will be on hand as we explore these topics and the emotions they raise.
