Taboo Health presents Mr. Dak: The Tale of a Special Turtle, a family-friendly story-time reading and Q&A with author Dayna Saba. Saba’s first children’s book broaches the topic of death through narrative storytelling. After experiencing the loss of her grandfather, Saba created the picture-book as both a playful biography and a tool by which to explain his passing to her young nephew. Written as a reminder that great love endures even after we are gone, Mr. Dak: The Tale of a Special Turtle is a compassionate introduction to concepts of loss and remembrance and provides an entry point for young children to express and process emotions surrounding the death of a loved one. This event is FREE—please register on Eventbrite.
