Event Details

A candid conversation with the award winning author, Jennifer Breheny Wallace, on her book, Never Enough: When Achievement Culture Becomes Toxic  - And What We Can Do About It.

The drive to optimize performance has only resulted in skyrocketing rates of anxiety, depression, and even self-harm in America’s highest achieving schools. Parents, educators, and community leaders are facing the same quandary: how can we teach our kids to strive towards excellence without defeating them?

Presented in partnership with D96, D102, D103, D125 and the Vernon Area Public Library.
