Georgia’s Essentials for Childhood Initiative, in partnership with Gwinnett County Public Libraries, is leading the Georgia Reads Book Club of What Happened to You? by Bruce D. Perry, MD, PhD and Oprah Winfrey.
Be a part of the Georgia Reads Book Club by hosting local readings and discussions on “What Happened to You?”
Georgia Reads is looking for adults, neighborhood book clubs, libraries, community groups, faith-based organizations, civic clubs, or social service providers to host local discussions. Using our Georgia-specific discussion guide, hosts will facilitate conversations on the book’s main concepts including trauma, brain development, resilience, and healing. Hosts will receive the Georgia specific discussion guide through email by registering their book club event below.
PCA Georgia is hosting an open discussion on the book “What Happened to You?” by Dr. Bruce Perry and Oprah. This will be an interactive conversation on the book’s main concepts including trauma, brain development, resilience, and healing. Engage with others interested in how communities can use a trauma-informed approach in supporting children and families.
Space is limited and we are asking participants to have (mostly) read the book “What Happened to You?” prior to attending.
The Georgia Reads team will be hosting a statewide event featuring author Dr. Bruce Perry and PCA America President and CEO, Dr. Melissa Merrick, on January 10, 2022 at 7:00 pm for a virtual author event. Engage with individuals from around the state and gain insight into the impact of trauma. We hope this event will inspire you to host your own book club reading and discussion of “What Happened to You?”
