OCTOBER 19TH, 2013

Less Than Three is a YA Lit/Anti-Bullying conference that will bring about teens, tweens, booksellers, teachers, administrators, parents, librarians, authors and more to rally against bullying. It will feature panels which focus on the various effects of bullying and positive approaches to tackling the issue. Less Than Three will bring people together, and get a dialogue going about bullying and how it affects everyone.
