Please note: this program contains explicit language.

SticksandStonesGrowing up has never been easy, but with the rise of the Internet and social media, bullying has taken on new, complex, and insidious forms, and suddenly childhood is exponentially more challenging—as parents, educators, and even elementary-age kids know all too well. Slate senior editor Emily Bazelon, a leading voice on the social and legal aspects of childhood drama and author of Sticks and Stones, returns to Town Hall after hosting 2012’s sold-out Political Gabfest to examine the ever-shifting landscape of kid-to-kid meanness and its sometimes-devastating consequences. In conversation with The Stranger editorial director Dan Savage (It Gets Better), Bazelon defines bullying (and what is not bullying); identifies when intervention is essential; dispels persistent myths; and explains, above all, that to deal with the problem, we must first understand what today’s kids are going through. Presented as part of Town Hall’s Civics series by Spruce Street School, Billings Middle School, and Town Hall with Elliott Bay Book Company. Media sponsorship provided by The Stranger.
Tickets are $5 atwww.townhallseattle.org or 888/377-4510 and at the door beginning at 6:30 pm. Town Hall members receive priority seating. Great Hall; enter on Eighth Avenue.
