The Conversation Project with Beryl Knudsen, a facilitator of a bereavement support group at Danbury Hospital, will lead this discussion.

The project is dedicated to helping people talk about their end-of-life care.

The idea to host this discussion arose from a recent book discussion on "Being Mortal" by Atul Gawande at the store, said the announcement.

This event is open to all and is free.

In addition, participants will receive a free "Conversation Project starter kid if they register in advance.

Beryl Knudsen is a member of Saints Peter and Paul Orthodox Church in Bethel. 

She has a B.A. from Barnard College and a B.S.N. from Cornell, New York Hospital School of Nursing, and is a registered nurse.

She received a master of divinity from St. Vladimir's Seminary and trained in chaplaincy at St. John's Riverside in Yonkers and at Danbury Hospital. 

Knudsen facilitates a bereavement support group at Danbury Hospital.

Her discussion will begin at 7 p.m. at the store, 126 Greenwood Ave., Bethel.
