Come to the virtual launch of The Shared Room!
When is a good time to speak to a child of grief, to teach them of loss, to speak of those who have gone, who are leaving, who will be so desperately missed? These are some of the big questions of my life and my art.
I’m so moved that the virtual launch of The Shared Room is co-sponsored by the following organizations: The Dougy Center for Grieving Children and Families, Ntxhais Thoj‘s beloved In Progress, AMAZE Works, my own beloved Saint Paul Public Schools SPPS, Nokomis Montessori School North PTO, the hardworking teachers with the St. Paul Federation of Educators Local 28, and a press that really believes in my work and life, my vision and mission as a writer, the University of Minnesota Press.
I have never launched a book that will be sponsored by so many organizations whose work I believe so deeply in. You have the opportunity to join us on June 9, 2020. Please register below. For the very first time in my career, folk from further places can join us.
I believe that all children and families, regardless of where you’re positioned, will learn compassion and empathy, garner a language to speak to the quiet, the hurting, that far too many families have to live with in The Shared Room.
