Everyone will eventually experience the loss of someone meaningful. It’s important to talk about grief and to hold an ongoing space for our losses because relationships don’t end when someone dies, and our own lives hold enormous potential for significance after a loss.

Modern Loss is a global movement all about eradicating the stigma and awkwardness around grief while also focusing on our capacity for resilience and finding meaning. In The Modern Loss Handbook: An Interactive Guide to Moving Through Grief and Building Your Resilience, Modern Loss cofounder Rebecca Soffer offers candid, practical, and witty advice for confronting a future without your person, honoring their memory, dealing with trigger days, managing your professional life, and navigating new and existing relationships. You’ll find no worn-out platitudes or empty assurances here. With prompts, creative projects, innovative rituals, therapeutic-based exercises, and more, this is the place to explore the messy, long arc of loss on your own timeline—and without judgment.

Soffer is the coauthor of Modern Loss: Candid Conversation about Grief. Beginners Welcome and an internationally recognized speaker on loss and resilience. She is a Peabody Award–winning former producer for The Colbert Report. Soffer will be in conversation with Hanna Rosin, the editorial director for audio at New York Magazine, former co-host of NPR’s “Invisibilia,” and the author of The End of Men.
