Say His Name Book Club

Monday, March 1, 6:30-8 via Zoom

Some readers said I was brave for sharing such intimate feelings in Say His Name: A Mother's Grief. But for me, it was more an act of desperation. I had to expel the devastating emotions inside me. Sunlight shrank the vampires.

I published Say His Name to help others. But then something amazing happened. Readers told me how much my story moved them and they shared their own stories, echoing back to me the takeaways I intended for them--you are not alone, your feelings are natural, you don't need to "let it go." These moments of grace allowed us to help one another.

Sharing grief, bringing it into the light, reduces its power over us. I wanted to continue this through a book club, using Say HIs Name as a jumping-off point for a raw discussion of our shared grief.

Participants said the experience helped them feel part of a supportive community. Talking to others who "get it" about grief helped us all feel cared for and listened to.
