Please come and participate in our AGM at University Centre, 7.30 pm on 17 October.
Erica Buist is a journalist, mostly for the Guardian, Medium and the BBC. She has just finished a journey to seven of the world’s death festivals. It was sparked by the day she and her husband found his father dead and she realised the full extent to which we in the West suffer from death denial and mortal terror. The resulting book, This Party’s Dead, will be published in 2020 and is available for preorder at unbound.com/books/deathtivals/
