Event Description

The Legend of Miss Kendra has been illustrated (by Tanya Leonello) and published as a hardcover book!  This month over 2,000 copies of the book will be distributed free to each of the elementary school children in the New Haven schools where the ALIVE program is being conducted.  Come and join the Mayor and other community leaders in marking this event!

The Legend describes the story of resilience born of suffering, of strength overcoming helplessness, and knowledge arising from the truth of experience.  Miss Kendra is becoming embedded within the New Haven community as a guardian figure who helps children cope with chronic and toxic stress of everyday living.  She represents the essence of so many real people in New Haven who have been working each day to help our children.  Each of us, indeed, is Miss Kendra!

Come and celebrate our legend, meet the illustrator, get your own copy, and share in the discussions with friends and colleagues! Light refreshments will be provided.
