Author Walton will speak on “The Power of Human Kindness. Bullies come from all kinds of households. But one thing bullies have in common is a lack of empathy.They were not taught to put themselves into others’ shoes, hence the ease with which they torture their fellow students. Quite simply, not teaching a child how to be empathetic and compassionate is a societal failure. Unfortunately, empathy does not come naturally for many children. Oftentimes children must be explicitly taught to think of others, to be kind and compassionate. The teachable moments must be seized. Award-winning young adult author and anti-bullying expert K.M. Walton shows audiences what compassion looks and sounds like. She shares personal and touching stories as well as highly effective anti-bullying techniques.

K.M. is a graduate of West Chester University, with a degree in elementary education. As a former middle-school language arts teacher she’s passionate about education and ending peer bullying. During her time in the classroom she developed proven ways to stop bullying. She is also the former director/owner of the summer day camp, Camp Kindness. Basically, teaching about kindness, empathy and tolerance has been a life-long passion for her.

Alyssa Sutton serves as Sisterhood Speaker Series Chair and Suzanne Weinick and Sandra Kantor are Sisterhood Co- Presidents. There will be a book signing after the event.

Bring your teens and young adults! Cost of the event is $20 per person or students ( 21 and under) $5.
