Co-presented with the Toronto International Festival of Authors (TIFA), kids can work with illustrator and children’s book author Carey Sookocheff to create their special remembering stone based on her excellent book, The Remembering Stone, a gentle story about loss and grief and how small everyday actions can connect us to those we love. Books will also be available for purchase.
