Booked: Brookline's Claire Willis

March 26, 2014: Death is one of our last taboo topics, but if it were up to Claire Willis, we would be meeting at cafés, talking about it as openly as the characters on Sex & The City dished about sex.

Willis, a licensed clinical social worker, has been counseling Oncology patients and helping clients with end-of-life issues for the past 25 years. Her new book, Lasting Words: A Guide to Finding Meaning Toward the Close of Life, is both a writing guide and a workbook for people struggling to find meaning and hope in the last stages of life.

Old-Fashioned Fix-It Shop Focuses on Refurbishing, Not Replacing

Walking into Village Green Renewal on 6 Davis Avenue in Brookline Village is like stepping into your grandfather's (or perhaps even your great-grandfather's) workshop, with all the old tools mounted on the walls and the many boxes and drawers overflowing with antique door knobs, brass hardware, and skeleton keys that might unlock the door of an old Victorian house, like the kind you see all over Brookline.
