No one wants to talk about death.

Only 25% of adults make end-of-life plans, including advance medical directives.

I spoke with Gail Rubin, a death education expert and author of the award-winning book, "A Good Goodbye: Funeral Planning for Those Who Don’t Plan to Die," to talk about the thing no one wants to talk about - dying - and how to laugh in the face of death.

 

Gail Rubin is coming to Ann Arbor to speak about death, end-of-life planning, and other issues on May 18.
