  • Queen Bees and Masterminds: Bestselling Author Rosalind Wiseman - (AHS Event)

    April 25, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
    Animas High School, 20091 US-160, Durango, CO 81301, USA (map)

    AHS families and Durango community members are invited to join us as we welcome speaker Rosalind Wiseman, author of the bestsellers Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends & Other Realities of Adolescence (the book that inspired the movie Mean Girls) and Masterminds and Wingmen: Helping Our Boys Cope with Schoolyard Power, Locker-Room Tests, Girlfriends, and the New Rules of Boy World.

    In her presentation, Wiseman pulls back the curtain on what’s really going on between boys and girls and why they can be so reluctant to ask adults for help. She’ll share how boys’ and girls’ social group dynamics influence their interactions and offer step-by-step advice on how to teach young people to treat each other with dignity. She’ll also give common-sense suggestions about how to deal with the frequent struggles between children and their parents – from video games and social networking to communication breakdowns.

    We will have Wiseman's books available for purchase at the event, thanks to our partnership with Maria's Bookshop.

    Rosalind Wiseman has been listening to, and occasionally arguing with young people about everything and anything that’s important to them for the past twenty years. All of her work is based on the belief that young people’s experiences are important but often discounted and that adults often give young people advice without listening to them first.

    She is also the author of The Guide (which is being developed into a movie with the help of a teen advisory board), and the young adult novel, Boys, Girls and Other Hazardous Materials. In the fall of 2016, she published the Owning Up Curriculum, a social emotional learning curriculum that she wrote in collaboration with middle and high school students. She is constantly developing new books, films, and social media projects with her team at Rosalind Wiseman's Cultures of Dignity and young people throughout the country. Although she grew up in Washington DC, she was born in Philadelphia, she now lives in Boulder Colorado. Learn more at http://culturesofdignity.com/
