Falmouth Reads Together: Conversations with Kids about Loss and Grief
with Claire Poole and Sara Hines
Sunday, March 12, 2017
In conjunction with this year's Falmouth Reads Together program, which features Atul Gawande's Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End and Roz Chast's Can't We Talk about Something More Pleasant, Eight Cousins will be hosting a book talk and conversation about helping kids and families discuss loss and grief.
The event will be a conversation between Claire Poole, LCSW, Adjustment Councilor at Teaticket Elementary School and Sara Hines, Eight Cousins. We will highlight books from picture books for younger children to Young Adult titles for teens that will help facilitate conversations about loss and grief. This talk is intended for parents, teachers, child care workers, and others who are looking for gentle ways to introduce or discuss these topics.
Claire Poole graduated Summa Cum Laude from Simmons College with a degree in Psychology. She then completed a Masters in Social Work at Boston University. She has been a School Adjustment Counselor in Falmouth for 11 years.
Sara Hines holds Masters degrees in Children's Literature and European Literature as well as a PhD in English Literature and Book History. She is currently oversees the children's department at Eight Cousins.
