The Dinner Party

Oct 10, 2018-- Loss is part of life for all of us, but the tendency in our time is to carry that burden alone. Lennon Flowers had lost her own mother to cancer and was carrying that burden alone when her friend and colleague Carla Hernandez reached out to her. Carla invited Lennon over to share dinner with other friends who'd lost a loved one, and the Dinner Party was born. Today, there are thousands of Dinner Partiers active at over 200 tables in over 90 cities and towns worldwide. Gathered around tables of shared food, age groups, and losses, participants share their stories.
