Zayde-front.jpgThere are many tough topics that we must discuss with our children, but few are more challenging than talking about loss, grief and death. What do you say? When do you say it? How much do you discuss? Join author Sheri Sinykin at the Jewish Healthcare Center in Worcester on Oct. 17 for her presentation, "Good Grief: How to Talk to Your Child About Death." Using her own clinical, research and personal experience with the topic, Sinykin will share with attendees her inspiration for her newest children's book, "Zayde Comes to Live," as well as suggestions for conversations with children about the end of life. She will end with a reading of the picture book, which has been highly praised as a sensitive portrait of a young girl trying to make peace with the impending death of her grandfather. Though the book presents a uniquely Jewish perspective, it has been lauded for showing respect for all religions and the different beliefs regarding the afterlife. This is the author's first picture book, but her 19th book for children, and copies will be available for purchase and signing. The event is for adults only. Wed., Oct.17, 7-8:30 p.m. Free. Adults only. Jewish Healthcare Center, 629 Salisbury Street, Worcester. www.jewishhealthcarecenter.com.
