Emily Bazelon’s first book, Sticks and Stones, comes out this month. Her Slate series about bullying included illuminating research that altered the conventional narrative of some highly publicized real-life cases. The book builds on this with new stories about kids and schools, and new discussion of the relevant research about bullying — its causes and the most effective ways to respond and prevent it. To express her gratitude for pre-orders, Emily has put together a package of giveaways for Slate readers who buy the book before the publication date.
Anybody who orders the book — hardcover or e-book, from any bookseller — before February 19, 2013, will receive the following:
1. A free one-hour webinar with Emily – with an exclusive look at the latest developments in research about bullying and kids’ behavior online, along with a chance to ask her questions.
2. Three free PDF resource guides Emily has written, highlighting books, movies, and programs that fight bullying, tailored to educators, parents, and students.
3. A free PDF of a Q&A with Emily, delving into some of the topics in the book in greater and more personal detail.
4. A free STICKS AND STONES book plate, signed by Emily and mailed to you, to paste inside your book.
Once you pre-order the book, or if you’ve done so already, just forward your receipt in any form to firstname.lastname@example.org to get information about how to receive the extras.
