Dr. Wiener and her colleague Dr. Meaghann Weaver recently published a storybook, The Gift of Gerbert’s Feather. Through the perspective of a brave, dying gosling and his close community, this book was written to help children through the psychological and behavioral process of preparing for a natural end of life.
