Join GCPL and Georgia’s Essentials for Childhood Initiative as we kick off a Georgia Reads Book Club of "What Happened to You?" by Bruce D. Perry, MD, PhD and Oprah Winfrey.
Leaders from Georgia’s Essentials Initiative will discuss how our state is working to address trauma, build resilience, and offer healing in our communities. There will also be a kickoff to the Georgia Reads event and learn about why you should read this insightful book, What Happened to You?
Dr. Perry will be joining us on January 10, 2022 at 7:00 pm for a virtual author event.
Georgia Essentials for Childhood is part of a comprehensive effort for child abuse and neglect prevention across several states using the Essentials for Childhood framework developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). They are working to build resilient communities, address and prevent adverse childhood experiences, improve community environments, and reduce and destigmatize trauma. Georgia Essentials views this work through an intentional equity and racial justice lens. A child’s race, ethnicity, gender, family income, or neighborhood should not predict their future success and well-being.
