Have dinner and talk – three stories

For people preferring a more formal and perhaps more intimate conversation and where people come prepared having done some reading or started conversations with family and friends, then Let’s Have Dinner and Talk About Death might be more attractive and better meet their needs than Die-alogue Cafe. Here are some posts that tell the stories of people in the US who are using this framework to get end-of-life discussions going around the dining table.  

The first is by Shannon Pettypiece at Bloomberg: Death Dinners at Baby Boomers’ Tables Take on Dying Taboo  http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-09-24/death-dinners-at-baby-boomers-tables-take-on-dying-taboo.html

 at The Huntington Post:  Death Over Dinner, The Conversation Project Aim To Spark Discussions About The End Of Life   http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/12/23/death-over-dinner-conversation-project_n_4495250.html
