What is Death Cafe?

Death Café is an international movement that began in September 2011 in the United Kingdom and has spread to a worldwide audience. Death Café is not a grief support group. Death Café is a group directed discussion about what many consider life’s last unknown, death. Students, employees, and community members are invited to attend to talk about death. Please stop by, drink some coffee or tea, eat some cake, and talk about death. Classes welcome.

For more information, please contact Library Specialists Terri Bennett or Dottie Hill at 913-288-7659 or go to deathcafe.com.

Upcoming Events

Death Cafe will be taking a break during the summer 2019 semester but will return to the Learning Commons at KCKCC during the Fall 2019 semester. Look for our events to be posted here as well as on our Facebook page!
