Speaking Grief Virtual Film Screening and Panel Discussion

 

Tuesday, November 10th at 6:30 p.m.

 

Co-Sponsored by The Ferguson Library, Leo P. Gallagher & Son and GALE (Grief And Loss Education) to mark November as "Children's Grief Awareness Month."

 

Speaking Grief, produced by public media station WPSU Penn State in State College, Pennsylvania, features diverse representations of grief through candid interviews with families whose losses range from stillbirth to suicide. The documentary shares stories from families in Houston; Los Angeles; Oakland, California; Collins, New York; Philadelphia; and Collegeville and Bellefonte, Pennsylvania.

The documentary is part of a multi-platform project aimed at elevating a national conversation around grief by creating the space for the journey to recovery. The Speaking Grief Project has been made possible with philanthropic support from the New York Life Foundation.

A panel discussion will follow the screening. There will be a giveaway of the English or Spanish version of the book Tear Soup: A Recipe for Healing After Loss for everyone who participates.
