Title: Teen Talk - Violent Language & Romanticized Abuse in Young Adult Literature
Contact: Stephanie Miller, 207-236-3642
Location: Rockport Room
Description: October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and it's important to understand where roots of violence and abuse stem from. New Hope Midcoast will be visiting the Rockport Public Library for a Teen Talk in which, we explore where violent language comes from and the various ways romanticized abuse in young adult literature both reinforces and plays into the harmful misrepresentations of safe and respectful teen dating relationships that have been established in other areas of our society today.  This is a free event and ideal for students in grades 7-12. Parents and/or guardians are welcome to join the discussion as well.         207-236-3642
