Death can be a tough topic to broach, especially with children. A new collaboration of best-selling author Julia Alvarez and printmaker Sabra Field aims to make the conversation a little easier. Where Do They Go?, the Vermont artists’ new kids’ book, uses poetry and simple, colorful illustrations to pose questions about what happens after a loved one dies. Alvarez and Field preview the publication, available to the general public in November, at a child-friendly reading, discussion and book signing, complete with a standing-accordion sculpture of the 10 prints Field created for the book.
