Books beat bullies

Hermitage High School kicked off a yearlong discussion on bullying on October 17th using the books of two authors as a catalyst. The student body heard award-winning authors Erin Jade Lange and Meg Medina talk about themes of bullying, connecting and acceptance in their acclaimed young-adult novels.

The author appearances were made possible by a grant written by Librarian Anita Tarbox and awarded by the Henrico Education Foundation, with additional funding from HCPS Library Services, the Hermitage PTSA and Hermitage High School.
