Survivor, expert and activist Jodee Blanco is one of the country’s pre-eminent voices on the subject of school bullying. She is the author of The New York Times bestseller, Please Stop Laughing At Me . . . One Woman’s Inspirational Story, a chronicle of her years as the student outcast. Jodee Blanco’s understanding of why kids abuse other kids comes from a deep personal place. From fifth grade through the end of high school, she was rejected and tormented by her peers simply for being different. As an adult, she decided to go public with her story as a way of shedding light on this social problem. Blanco’s work has been published in Japanese, Danish and Arabic. She lives in the suburbs of Chicago. For more information on Blanco and how to bring her to your school or community to share her story live, visit her website at www.jodeeblanco.com.
It's good to talk.
