Update 3-12-20: This event has been postponed. It will be rescheduled at a later date.


In the spring of 1846, Nancy Dorsey of Piqua, Ohio, sent a letter to her sister vividly describing the death of her infant daughter and her struggle to come to terms with her loss. (See links to download and read the letter.)

All are welcome to a discussion of this emotional letter and the human experience of death and loss across time. Join in the conversation by sharing your own history and personal reflections with grief counselors, historians, and local community members over a complimentary lunch.

Registration is required. Please register by April 3.

Coordinated by the William L. Clements Library with generous support from Frank & Judy Wilhelme. Presented in collaboration with the Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies and GrieveWell of Ann Arbor.
