Shattered Glass Book Launch

Poetry Reading/Spoken Word, Signing/Readings

Join Clinton College for the Shattered Glass Book Launch The Shattered Glass project is the creative work of 11 students at Clinton College, who came together to share their individual points of views and ideas about life in the 21st century. With Dr. Kimberly P. Johnson as co-author, it became abundantly clear during this project that this group of young people need to be heard! They are resilient, determined and culturally aware. So often, adults feel that young people do not understand the dynamics of the world today. However, the reality is that the youth - who are both engaged and interactive - are more aware of our world challenges than some adults will ever be! Take this incredible journey with these students as they share their views on life’s pains, the drive to find their purpose and the need to connect with their future through the passion and desire to succeed. Today’s young people need our support more than ever, but what we can’ t forget is that they also have great ideas and beliefs to contribute to the world! Just Listen….
