Join The Garden: A Center for Grieving Children and Teens for a virtual book reading by local author, Holly Thompson, on Thursday, Nov. 18, at 6 pm.
This book reading is in honor of National Children’s Grief Awareness Day, which falls on Thursday, Nov. 18. Children’s Grief Awareness Day is designed to help inform the public by becoming more aware of the needs of grieving children, and the benefits that children can get through support of others.
Thompson will read her book Orchards, which tells the story of a young adult following the death of a classmate and the character’s journey to process the pain and guilt she feels about the tragedy while working in the orchards in her native Japan. Following the book reading, there will be a Q&A session.
The Garden, which provides support to grieving young people and their families following the death of someone close, is fortunate to have Thompson join this virtual book read in recognition of Children’s Grief Awareness Day.
This program is appropriate for adults and young people ages 12 and up. To RSVP, email VECDHC@COOLEYDICKINSON.ORG. Upon registration, a Zoom link will be sent with confirmation of the registration.
