NEW: EMPATHY IS NOT ENDORSEMENTWhat I learned from facing my deepest fears to research and write SOME KIND OF HATE

In this presentation, Sarah takes students through the difficult process of researching and writing (and rewriting and rewriting and revising and revising) Some Kind of Hate. The research for this book forced her to confront her deepest childhood fears and write in the head of those who wish for the destruction of her family and everyone of her faith. At this time of political polarization when it seems impossible to have conversations with those we don’t agree with, Sarah will share what she learned from the experience, how it has changed both her thoughts and her actions, and provide practical tools for students.
