A Conversation with Hope Edelman
November 18, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Jamie-Lee Josselyn, creator of the KWH podcast “Dead Parents Society,” hosts a conversation with Hope Edelman. Edelman’s latest book, The Aftergrief, is about the long process of loss, and how “the death of a loved one isn’t something most of us get over, get past, put down, or move beyond.”
Hope Edelman has been writing, speaking, and leading workshops and retreats in the bereavement field for more than 25 years. She was 17 when she lost her mother to breast cancer and 40 when her father died, events that inspired her to offer grief education and support to those who cannot otherwise receive it. Her first book, Motherless Daughters, was a #1 New York Times bestseller and appeared on multiple bestseller lists worldwide. Hope is the author of seven additional nonfiction books, including Motherless Mothers and the memoir The Possibility of Everything. Her book The AfterGrief was published in October 2020. She was the recipient of the 2020 Community Educator Award from the Association for Death Education and Counseling and has won a Puschcart Prize for her creative nonfiction. Hope lives and works in Los Angeles and Iowa City.
