Tuesday Evening Book Discussion Group

When: Tuesday, Dec 10, 2019 7:00 PM
Phone: 518-371-8622

Join us for a discussion of The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning by M. Magnusson. In Sweden there is a kind of decluttering called döstädning, dö meaning “death” and städning meaning “cleaning.” This surprising and invigorating process of clearing out unnecessary belongings can be undertaken at any age or life stage but should be done sooner than later, before others have to do it for you.

In The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning, artist Margareta Magnusson, with Scandinavian humor and wisdom, instructs readers to embrace minimalism. Her radical and joyous method for putting things in order helps families broach sensitive conversations, and makes the process uplifting rather than overwhelming. First-time participants are always welcome!
