"It Gets Better"
With Amber Wright
Thursday, May 23 from 6:30 to 8:00 PM
In the Meeting Room
Amber Wright is a Columbine survivor, elementary school teacher, and mother who wrote 'It Gets Better' specifically for the children of Newtown. She raised funds to have the book printed and to bring donated copies to our community. The book offers words of hope and encouragement to help kids cope with the difficult emotions related to post-traumatic stress. It is beautifully illustrated with photographs by Sarah Wood.
“I wanted to give the children something they could hold in their hands, something meaningful that they could understand,” said Wright.
While 'It Gets Better' is a children's book, this evening talk is geared toward adults. We hope you can join us! Free copies of the book will be available for participants to bring home and share with their young ones. We expect this program to fill fast, so please register here to ensure that you get a seat!
