Soft Connections: A Grief Café Series, ft. Lisa Keefauver: GRIEF IS A SNEAKY BITCH (with Leslie Gray Streeter)

Bird in Hand joins with What's Your Grief to present Soft Connections: A Grief Café Series, inspired by value of soft connections in community spaces like Bird in Hand, and the support they lend to people in grief. Our first event features Lisa Keefauver and Leslie Gray Streeter.

Social worker and grief activist Lisa Keefauver will speak about her new book, Grief is a Sneaky Bitch: An Uncensored Guide to Navigating Loss, with Leslie Gray Streeter, author of Black Widow! Keefauver's book tackles our "grief-illiterate world" head-on, sharing personal and professional wisdom alongside lessons learned from clinicians, authors, poets, and friends in the wake of becoming a widow. In place of rigid instructions and must-do checklists, Grief is a Sneaky Bitch invites reflection, encourages self-compassion, and explores the therapeutic power of humor with, yes, a bit of profanity.

This is going to be a night of honesty, humor, and softness all in one-- we hope you'll join us, and bring or make a friend.
