Editors, Ifalade Ta’Shia Asanti and Azaan Kamau are proud to announce one of the most highly anticipated anthologies of the decade. Letters to My Bully published by Glover Lane Press will arrive to bookstores and on-line markets on August 15, 2012.
Why a Letter to My Bully?
Every day in America, 160,000 students miss school due to bullying. According to reports by the Secret Service, two-thirds of school shootings are motivated by bullying. A whopping 43% of middle school children avoid the bathroom and locker rooms at all costs due to certainty of being bullied. And finally, the number one reason for suicides among youth ages 11-16 is bullying.
Glover Lane Press’ historical anthology, Letters to My Bully, not only gives victims of bullying an outlet to express the impact of bullying in their lives, contributors speak on solutions to the problem and offer healing advice to survivors. Letters to My Bully is a thought-provoking collection of letters, poetry and essays written by youth, women, men, seniors and celebrities that will change the way this country views survivors forever.
“As a survivor of bullying, I wanted to do a project that would not only help victims heal but would help to educate the masses on how serious this issue is. I define bullying as abuse, mistreatment, torment and harassment by peers, classmates, neighbors, the congregation, siblings, parents, boyfriend, your spouse, etc. This is an issue that America must make a priority as it relates to social justice and peace movements.” Says Glover Lane Press publisher, Azaan Kamau
Co-editor, Ifalade Ta’Shia Asanti says, “Letters to My Bully is an excellent tool for ministers, teachers, community leaders, parents, teens and youth to educate those around them about the dangers of bullying. Until everybody, everywhere is addressing this issue in some form, it will continue to plague our great nation.” Says Ifalade
Letters to My Bully includes contributions by Actor, Robert LaSardo and Huffington Post writer, Kergan Edwards-Stout, as well as more than a dozen other best-selling, nationally celebrated writers. There are also pieces written by child survivors and senior citizens.
Letters to My Bully is proud to be supported by national Peace Partners who have committed to ensuring the message of this anthology will reach the masses.
Letters to My Bully edited by Ifalade Ta’Shia Asanti, Azaan Kamau and published by Glover Lane Press will be released by August 15, 2012.
