Based on the family’s true story of their young son experiencing heaven while clinging to life during an emergency appendectomy, Burpo’s book was released in 2010 and became a #1 New York Times bestseller. Made into a major motion picture by Sony Pictures in 2014, the family’s story takes viewers through the events leading up to, and the aftermath of, their son’s near-death experience.
A global grief literacy event, the convention’s mission is to open the dialogue about grief and the aftermath. Open to the public, tickets are $35 and available online at www.griefconvention.com.
