Local Author Presents Program on Bullying

Local author and illustrator Dakei Harvey will present a special program on bullying on Thursday, July 12 at 4:00 p.m. at the Jermaine Jackson-Cairns Community Center, 58 Orchard, Mount Clemens.  Harvey has written and illustrated a series of books featuring a young character named Roger Crabgrass, who is a victim of bullying. Through the eyes of Roger Crabgrass, Harvey explores the effects of bullying and suggests strategies for diffusing and preventing it.  His program, entitled "Change Makes Cents: Roger Crabgrass Talks About Bullying," is designed to empower children to help prevent bullying situations and to cope with them when they occur.

The program is free and open to the public. No registration is necessary.  Please note that this event will take place at the Jermaine Jackson-Cairns Community Center at 58 Orchard, NOT at the library building.
