Surviving Grief: With Kate Spencer

Surviving Grief: With Kate Spencer

The Dead Moms Club.jpg

Kate Spencer knows everyone cool, and everyone cool knows Kate Spencer. This is what I’ve come to realize after getting to know this woman. The writer and Upright Citizens Brigade alum is the kind of person who is both wildly clever and fiercely self-deprecating. The two of us recently teamed up on a bus full of women activists helmed by Jane Fonda (YES, THE JANE FONDA) to electrify voters who normally sit out of mid-term elections. Kate held the map and kept the ledger. I knocked on the doors and did most of the chatting. We stayed in our respective lanes and were a good team!

After reading her book, I have a whole new respect for Kate. She’s been on the front lines of grief after the death of her mom. She lays it all out in The Dead Moms Club. The book holds your hand yet respects your process. It gave me a fresh perspective on something about which I have little experience. Pre-order it today!
