In The Dog Who Found Sorrow, author Rūta Briede and illustrator Elīna Braslina show their hero, an intrepid young dog, who wakes to find his hometown covered in thick black clouds and heads out in search of the source of sorrow. On his intrepid quest, he learns how to confront sorrow in innovative and uplifting ways. Though he is scared, the dog shows young readers that even in times of uncertainty we can find it within ourselves to put on a rain hat, set out, and find hope.

Join Elīna for this uplifting storytelling event, followed by a drawing workshop where children will learn about sadness through creativity and conversation.
