This event is a collaboration between Little Falls Village, Bethesda Metro Area Village, and Friendship Heights Neighbors Network.

In this entertaining and interactive workshop, Chris Palmer will explain why talking with your family about your funeral preferences is essential, why comparison shopping can save you significant money, and how eco-friendly options at the end of life (like green burial, water cremation, and other options) present new opportunities. Chris will also cover related topics, including embalming, home funerals, and death doulas.

His next book, Achieving a Good Death: A Practical Guide to the End of Life, will be published this fall by Rowman & Littlefield.
