Ways to Grieve
‘…any sensible person knows grief is a long-term project. I refuse to rush. The pain that is thrust upon us let no man slow or speed or fix.’
- Max Porter, Grief is the thing with Feathers
The grief that follows loss is one of the more challenging ‘problems of gravity’. We naturally grieve for the loss of a person or a pet we have loved, but are there other more hidden forms of grief – the loss of an idea about the future or the past, for example, or the sense of ourselves as we change? What can grief give us, if anything? How can we best negotiate our way through it?
In this, the second of our ‘Ways to …’ online events, we’ll open up the conversation about grief – in all its forms – by delving into literature’s rich tradition of writing about loss.
The Reader’s Kristin Hutchinson invites you to share in this supportive and relaxed reading session where the subjects of grief and loss aren’t taboo.
