Author, bullying expert to visit Cannon School
CONCORD — Cannon School will welcome Rosalind Wiseman, internationally recognized parenting and bullying expert and bestselling author, to Cannon’s campus on Thursday, Oct. 22 at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Wiseman is most notably the author of “Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends and the New Realities of Girl World,” the book which became the basis for the movie “Mean Girls.”
The long-awaited follow-up, “Masterminds & Wingmen: Helping Boys Cope with Schoolyard Power, Locker-Room Tests, Girlfriends, and the New Rules of Boy World,” was published in 2013.
Each year, Wiseman works with tens of thousands of students, educators, parents, counselors, coaches and administrators to address the challenges that face young adults. A frequent guest on “The Today Show” and “Anderson Cooper 360,” Wiseman has also been profiled in The New York Times, People, USA Today, CNN and on NPR affiliates.
This free community event is a presentation of the Maria DeHaas Lecture Series, made possible by the generosity of Dr. Ryan DeHaas and his family and friends through the Maria DeHaas Endowed Fund. The series features talks on topics of importance to families by distinguished speakers who will share their expertise and lead insightful discussions with the Cannon School community and the public.
