• Putting on a Brave Face with Shaun David Hutchinson 

    October 21 | 3p.m. ET  

    We all know how hard it can be to express yourself as a teen. Your parents (and peers) may not “get” you. Truth be told, you may not even get yourself. The pressures are constant and confusing when you’re straddling the line between kid and adult. And, if you're a teen struggling with depression or anxiety or your identity, the pressures can be even more intense. In honor of October’s Teen Read Week and Emotional Wellness Month, join us Wednesday, October 21 at 3PM EST as we sit down with Shaun David Hutchinson to talk about his memoir Brave Face and the power of literature to help young people find their place.   

    Perfect for librarians, educators, parents and students grades 8 & up. Brave Face touches on the following sensitive areas, which may also be discussed during the webcast: Drug/Alcohol/Tobacco Use/Abuse, Strong Language, Strong Sexual Content/Themes, Self-Harm, Suicidal Ideation, Depression, LGBTQ.
