When her own mother died, author Margaret Rice realised how completely unprepared she and her family had been for the experience of companioning a loved one who is dying. So she decided to go in search of the information she couldn’t find when she most needed it and write the book herself – A Good Death – a novice’s guide to death.
Talking about death
In August 2019, Margaret Rice was a guest of the Canberra Writer’s Festival.
“Two universal events bookend our lives: we are all born and we will all die. But we live in a period of intense death denial. Why is it that we cannot have a conversation about death and dying? With the recent legislation of euthanasia in Victoria, has the ultimate taboo been broken? Journalist and author of the successful blog Good Grief! and A Good Death, Margaret Rice joins Suharsha Kanathigoda, Director of Palliative Care ACT and Melissa Reader, CEO of LifeCircle Australia in a candid and compassionate conversation.”
