[ARCHIVED] OBOI: "I Don't Fit the Mold"

Assembly crowd newsflash

As part of the Independence Public Library’s One Book One Independence 2019 programming, the public is invited to the Independence Junior Senior High auditorium for an anti-bullying assembly presented by John Derryberry. Through his personal battles with depression and suicide during his teenage years, Derryberry realized the beauty, tenacity, and wealth of greatness this population possesses. He takes the label at-risk and turns it around to show no matter our background we offer the world around us value. He creates an environment with this presentation allowing for laughter, introspection, and compassion around the problematic topics of mental health, grieving, suicide, and trauma. 

Free and open to the public, “I Don’t Fit the Mold” begins at 9:00 am on April 12th at the Independence Junior Senior High auditorium. For more information, please contact the Public Library at 319-334-2470.
