Virtual Book Discussion Series for Adults Bereaved in Childhood

Adults who experienced loss during childhood have few places to tell our stories, remember our loved ones, and connect with others. I want to change that!

In memory of my mom – Mary Lee Wimberg Morse, 1933-1970

Though my mom died of cancer when I was seven, I didn’t start grieving until my 20s and only much later realized that the loss will always be part of me. At this stage in my journey, I feel called to publicly honor my mom’s memory for the first time. Reading in a community seems like the perfect tribute, because my lifelong love of books and libraries originated with her.

Here’s how it works:

Monthly book selections are a mix of new and older fiction as well as nonfiction. For each book, a live discussion takes place in a Zoom call. There is a dedicated private Facebook group where I post updates and questions about the books and you can comment as you feel moved. Feel free to join in one or both avenues of discussion as you prefer.

Participation is free of charge, but I offer suggested organizations related to grief, cancer support, and literacy if you’d like to donate in memory of your loved one.
