Audrey says:

"I heard about Death Cafe' from Lizzy Miles who started a Death Cafe' in Columbus, Ohio and I was so intrigued. As a Grief Specialist and through my own personal experience, having my husband die when I was 38 yrs of age and most recently the death of my dad, I know the subject of death and grief rarely come into a conversation, even when it's directly in front of us. We need to bring the subject of death out of the closet and into the dinner conversation. Death Cafe' is the perfect venue for this. I'm delighted to be on this adventure! Next stop, into the classroom! the first NYC Death Cafe' will be Wednesday, February 20th 6:00pm-7:30pm at Le Pain Quitidien, 7th Ave at 18th Street."
