Rebecca Soffer Discussing "The Modern Loss Handbook" with Jo Piazza

Please join us at Head House books June 2nd to discuss "Modern Loss: An Interactive Guide to Moving Through Grief and Building Your Resilience" by Rebecca Soffer. Rebecca Soffer is an author, organizer and the cofounder of Modern Loss - a resource built to help navigate life after loss. This is Soffer's second book release. Her first book, "Modern Loss: Candid Conversation About Grief. Beginners Welcome", debuted in 2018. 
Soffer will be joined by Jo Piazza. Jo is an author, editor and journalist. Some of her books include "We Are Not Like Them", "Techbitch" and "How to be Married: What I Learned from Real Women on Five Continents about Surviving My First (really Hard) Year of Marriage". Piazza has reported for the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and Slate. She currently resides in Philadelphia.
Modern Loss is all about eradicating the stigma and awkwardness around grief while also focusing on our capacity for resilience and finding meaning. In this interactive guide, Modern Loss cofounder Rebecca Soffer offers candid, practical, and witty advice for confronting a future without your person, honoring their memory, dealing with trigger days, managing your professional life, and navigating new and existing relationships. You’ll find no worn-out platitudes or empty assurances here. With prompts, creative projects, innovative rituals, therapeutic-based exercises, and more, this is the place to explore the messy, long arc of loss on your own timeline—and without judgment.

"Grief is the uninvited party guest that barges in and then never leaves. In this handbook, Rebecca doesnt just give you the tools to deal with it after everyone else has gone home; She makes you comfortable, makes you laugh, hands you the martini when you need it and provides the shoulder when you need that"

 - Glynnis MacNicol, author of "No One Tells You This"
