Thrivers: Parent Book Discussion and Workshop with author, Michele Borba

Monday April 26, 2021
8:00 PM until 9:00 PM


Join nationally recognized teacher, author, and educational consultant, Dr. Michele Borba, as we read and discuss her new book, Thrivers. Have you ever wondered why some thrive while others may not? According to Dr. Borba, thrivers are different. They flourish in our fast-paced, digital-driven, often uncertain world. Why? Dr. Borba combed scientific studies on resilience, spoke to dozens of researchers/experts in the field, and interviewed more than 100 young people from all walks of life, and she found something surprising: the difference between those who struggle and those who succeed comes down not to grades or test scores, but to seven character traits that set Thrivers apart. These thriver traits--confidence, empathy, self-control, integrity, curiosity, perseverance, and optimism-- allow kids to roll with the punches and succeed in life and can be taught to children at any age. In Thrivers, Dr. Borba offers practical, actionable ways to develop these traits in children from preschool through high school, showing how to teach kids how to cope today so they can thrive tomorrow! For parents of all ages, educators, and anyone interested in learning more.  Registration required. Hardcover books will be available for purchase for $5.00 or can be borrowed through the library system’s print and digital collections. Arrangements will be made for those who register to pick up the book.  The Zoom link will be emailed to registrants prior to the meeting date.
