Death:OK (Let’s Talk About It) is a day of inspiration, information, and connection taking place October 17, 2015 on the campus of Reed College in Portland, Oregon. As part of an ongoing series profiling our presenters, we’re pleased to introduce you to…
Four touching pieces of story and poetry about loss and reflection:
- Joanna Courtleigh, LPC performing “Harry” – an old Jewish man contemplates the scope of his life.
- Kristin Olson performing a slice of “Going On” – a true account of the author’s loss of her parents a young girl. (Olson will also show her entire work in video in another session.)
- David Rutiezer, Marla Allen, Pat Vivian & Sylvia Zingeser of “December First Writers” – a collection of works about the impact of AIDS on their lives and the loss of those they loved.
- Tio Houston, LCSW presenting “Last Words” – the account of the final gift a father gave his son.
