Death Café

At Portland Death Café people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea, and discuss death.

Death Café is a group-directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives, or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session. Our objective is to increase the awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.

If you are a person that will die one day, join us!

Like all Portland Public Library events, Death Cafés are free and open to all. Join us to share stories, question reality, and hear new voices as we ponder the mystery of death and dying.

We also discuss books! To see what Death Café participants are talking about, check out our book list.
