On Tuesday,September 16 at 7:00 pm the Library will present When Amish People Die: Community Support for the Dying and Grieving with Denise Reiling, Professor of Sociology at Eastern Michigan University.  Almost always, when Amish people die, they die at home surrounded by family and friends.  This presentation will focus on the cultural context within which Amish people die and grieve and the role of their fellow community members in creating an atmosphere of love, peace, and support as their loved ones pass away.  This program is held in conjunction with the Library's Community Read program.
