Doug will present some thoughts on Finding Meaning: The Sixth Stage of Grief by David Kessler. He will also offer a few of his own experiences, and read a few of his own poems written in the aftermath of his daughter Allison’s death. Everyone who purchases a copy of Kessler’s Finding Meaning that day, will receive a complimentary copy of Doug’s book of poetry, Ash Scattering. You can read Doug’s review of Kessler’s book here.

About Finding Meaning:

In this groundbreaking new work, David Kessler—an expert on grief and the coauthor with Elisabeth Kübler-Ross of the iconic On Grief and Grieving—journeys beyond the classic five stages to discover a sixth stage: meaning. Finding Meaning is a necessary addition to grief literature and a vital guide to healing from tremendous loss. This is an inspiring, deeply intelligent must-read for anyone looking to journey away from suffering, through loss, and towards meaning.

About Doug Knowlton:

Before bookstores, Doug worked in a variety of different health care settings, psychiatric facilities and community mental health settings, and was a case manager for the state’s disabled in-home services program. He found that aside from job descriptions and titles, his main role was grief counselor.
