“Passed and Present: Keeping Memories of Loved Ones Alive,” by Emmy-award-winning journalist Allison Gilbert, is the feature of a family event from 2-4 p.m. Saturday, July 9 at Changing Hands bookstore, 300 W. Camelback Road.

The “Memory Bash” led by Gilbert will engage children with a “show and tell” followed by a commemorative craft activity. Please bring a photo of your loved one to display.

Gilbert also will share her inspirational story of loss and healing as she is interviewed by Lin Sue Cooney, Hospice of the Valley’s director of Community Engagement and former news anchor. New Song Center for Grieving Children, a program of Hospice of the Valley, co-sponsors the event with Changing Hands.

Cost is $25 per family, including an autographed copy of the book.
