Living Our Dying

The book Living Our Dying is in it’s second edition and still selling.  I’ve decided to publish a pamphlet addressing the question: “What’s not been included in Living Our Dying” – such as still birth.  I will be sending this question to both contributors and readers. The pamphlet will be an annotated bibliography point to where readers can find out more. Please send me your suggestions and links to resources.
