Two death cafes are coming to Lancaster County.

Death may be a taboo topic for some, but people in Lancaster County want to start the conversation.

Dozens of people have come to local Death Cafes over the past few years. A café is a discussion group where people can talk about a tough subject in a relaxed setting. The cafes have been held around the world and those held locally by Berks Lancaster Lebanon Link to Aging and Disability Resources have resonated.

The story continues below the podcast.

And one is Thursday, Sept. 19 from 5:30-7 p.m. at Charles F. Snyder Funeral Home, 414 E. King St., Lancaster. This cafe will be in Spanish and English. Click here for our Spanish content site, La Voz.
