Join authors Kao Kalia Yang and John Coy from a reading of their new books. In The Shared Room Yang tenderly explores loss as a family grieves the death of a much loved little girl. In When We Are Gone Coy fearlessly offers a world in which our survival depends on the world around us not vice versa. Both these beautiful and brave books invite children to engage with the lonely, the heartache, the big questions of our lives and our times.

Yang and Coy will also discuss their processes, their books, and answer any questions you may have regarding these less happy, less fun, less celebratory books—the few and far between—that engage with the moments were the words don't come so easily, when the emotions are often times too heavy to lift, when the sky falls down all over and around us.
