Supporting a grieving child is a challenge for parents, carers, educators, and any adult who plays a part in a child's life. In this special program hosted by Brooklyn Public Library, The New York Public Library, and Queens Public Library, join an experienced panel of speakers to discuss how young people experience grief and how to talk about it with them. Plus, discover books and other resources to help you have those conversations and support grieving children. 

This free panel discussion will be held online via Zoom; register online to receive the event link.
