16 Kid Activists
$17 / $8.50 for student groups
Author-illustrator Janet Wilson has a strong social and environmental conscience and her books carry the message that one person—even one child—can make a big difference. In Our Earth: How Kids are Saving the Planet, she brings to light amazing things that young people around the world are doing for the planet’s future, like devising a windmill built from bicycle parts. In One Peace: True stories of Young Activists, she tells powerful accounts of young people injured by the effects of war, who have altered their lives to become workers for peace. If there were ever a thought that one child’s actions don’t count, that thought will be banished forever by this inspiring event. Janet will be joined by extraordinary young people who will share their stories.
This event is supported by the Rix Family Foundation.
