About the Author:

Jessica Strand, former events coordinator at the Strand Book Store, is the associate director of public programs at the New York Public Library. She lives in New York.

Review:

“One of the most comprehensive and helpful pieces of work and education on bullying, written in a way that kids will actually use. This is a program for everyone, and will change the landscape of education in dealing with bullying and harassment, especially at the elementary level. Well done and brilliant!”
- Publishers Weekly

“A celebratory literary salute to the Strand’s vitality. Favorite authors―very few found on bestseller lists―are a common refrain, and the contributors cite a wide variety of work from a diverse selection of essayists, poets, dramatists, memoirists, novelists, and graphic novelists . . . [and] touch on psychotherapy, imagination, and inspiration, as well as techniques, work habits, gender, and race.”
- Kirkus
