Join local author Victoria Noe for the grand finale of the Friend Grief series – Friend Grief and Men: Defying Stereotypes.
The sixth book in her series examines the belief that men grieve differently – less – than women. The stories of men – gay and straight, old and young – whose friendships changed their lives will challenge your notion of what it means to ‘be a man’. The most talked-about chapter in the book considers the connection between military veterans and long-term survivors in the AIDS community: two very different groups who have more in common than they realize. How men grieve, and how they honor their friends, may surprise you. But it will also help you understand the challenges that men face when they grieve the death of a friend.
Noe wrote the Friend Grief series to keep a promise to a dying friend. Find out more about that promise and what comes next at this celebration of the completion of the series.
Refreshments will be served.
