King Reads Together

The Parents’ Association, in partnership with PA KInD and DEI at King, is thrilled to launch the 2021 King Reads Together series. Over the next 5 months, join us as we read and learn from prominent thought leaders, educators and authors on parenting, self-esteem, racial literacy, and community. In January, we welcome Julie Lythcott-Haims in the first of two virtual visits to campus. In February, award winning NCAA athlete and motivational speaker Schuyler Bailar will share his journey to self-acceptance and love. Dr. Lisa Damour, psychologist, will join us in April to share her insights on parenting adolescents and managing stress and anxiety under Covid-19. Finally, in May, Julie Lythcott-Haims returns once again to speak with our graduating seniors on the topic of her new book How to Be an Adult, as well as an evening discussion with parents on How to Raise an Adult. We hope you will join us on this exciting journey to build a stronger community, together.
