The Day We Lost Pet with Chuck Young: BPL Newsfeed Cafe

NOTE: THIS EVENT IS NOW BEING HELD AT THE BOSTON PUBLIC LIBRARY CENTRAL BRANCH'S NEWSFEED CAFE. 

How do you talk to kids about death? The new picture book The Day We Lost Pet may be useful to parents, teachers, and caregivers facing this difficult task. Featuring illustrations by artist Aniela Sobieski, The Day We Lost Pet provides kids and adults with a unique, non-religious way to discuss death, and its genderless/raceless main characters speak to the universality of loss.

Part creation myth, part fairy tale, The Day We Lost Pet tells the story of a family that comes together to mourn the death of their beloved Pet. These endearing bal­loon characters harness the language of poetry, sci­ence, and nature in order to understand one of life’s most difficult moments.

Meet author Chuck Young and pick up your own signed copy of this unique picture book! The event starts at 7pm, show up early to grab a good seat and a drink! Beer and Wine will be available for purchase with Valid ID.
