Library Death Cafe explores death and dying

"What does death mean to you?
Laurie E. Johnson wants to know, and the supervising librarian at the Suisun City Library promises an open ear, no judgments, a warm pot of tea and some sweet treats.
All are the hallmarks of a Death Cafe, an event that brings people together to talk about death over tea and cake. “In our society, death isn’t really talked about,” Johnson explained. “It’s something we hold close.”
Based in Hackney, East London, Death Cafe was born in 2011. Since then, there have been 4,071 gatherings in 42 countries."
