Upcoming events with Gail Rubin, CT
Gail Rubin, CT, is an unconventional death educator who’s available for speaking engagements. She’ll “knock ‘em dead” with her enthusiastic approach to getting the conversation started on life and death issues using humor and funny films.
The objective of the Death Cafe is “To increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.” It’s all about an interesting, unstructured conversation – open and free-flowing with no specific agenda. Relax over some coffee or tea, some cake or cookies, and join in a group discussion to talk about what’s on your mind about mortality issues. Refreshments are provided at these free events. Gail is one of the first people to hold a Death Cafe in the United States.
Sunday, October 11, 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time — Albuquerque Death Cafe online via Zoom. More information here.
Saturday, September 26 & Sunday, September 27 — SouthWest Writers seminar “Writing IS a Business” Do you consider your writing to be a hobby or a business? There’s a big difference between the two as far as the IRS is concerned. Join SWW on September 26 and 27 for an interactive lecture series to learn the ins and outs of treating your writing as a business. Gail Rubin participates in a panel discussion on Saturday afternoon. Learn more and register here.
