Saturday Night Widows

“Saturday Night Widows” tells story of woman taking grief into her own hands

Journalist Becky Aikman’s new book, “Saturday Night Widows”, chronicles her journey from young widow to a woman learning to heal and finding love again.

Voice of Russia’s Jamila Bey talks with author Becky Aikman about her new book:


From getting kicked out of a grieving widow’s support group to rounding up a motley crew of friends who wanted to find joy again, the book explains her own journey in a culture which isn’t particularly good at dealing with helping people to cope with death.
