Scheduled events:
Looking Back, Moving Forward through Relationships
Looking back can facilitate our ability to move ahead through the healing influence of relationships. Three best-selling middle-grade authors show how friendships affect a bully, the search to reconnect with the past and the consequences of a school shooting. All three books are highly anticipated new books from award-winning authors.
