    About the book:
    Based on my own experience of grief— I lost a partner in my 20s—and as those of other Grief Club members, I wrote this book of brief writings, illustrations, and creative diagrams to explore the wide range of emotions and experiences that grief can encompass.

    For anyone who has lost a loved one or who is close to someone who is grieving, Welcome to the Grief Club is a book of solace, connection, hope, and reassurance. It addresses with empathy and honesty the aspects of grief that so many of us experience but that aren’t widely discussed: the variety and volatility of emotions—sadness, anger, guilt, joy; the physical symptoms of grief; and how grief isn’t linear, but it does change and soften over time. It affirms that there is truly no right or wrong way to grieve and assures us that the things we feel that surprise us or seem strange are often common and always valid.

    Humor helps us to survive, and the book uses a lighthearted approach to cover powerful topics, like supremely unhelpful things that people say to those who are grieving, grief trigger bingo, and everyday acts of resilience. This book is a companion that says, I see you and you are not alone, from one grieving person to another. It is a gentle reminder to give yourself permission to grieve for as long as—and in whichever ways—you need.

Your gift feels like a really big hug, like you're here with me, and like you definitely understand the struggle. Thank you so much. This is a wonderful celebration! Every single sticker and and quote on here I really, really need & needed!


    Love the things the things she has in her shop.


    Since my dad died last summer, I have given this book to everyone I know that has lost someone. I reread it when another wave of grief sneaks up. It’s been a lifesaver

    Perfect and easy

    Sent this to my best friend when her father passed. It feels so much more heartfelt to send something like this rather than just some flowers or something like that. I loved that my message was included in the letter (especially with my terrible handwriting).

    Love my inspo art and the personal touches

    I love all my Kwohtations purchases so much. As I hoped, it's inspiring work-life balance. Janine even sent an extra mini-print with a handwritten note on the back. Will be back :)
