Joanne George, author of “Smiley: A Journey of Love” and winner of a Forest of Reading Award in 2018 is continuing on Smiley’s legacy touring schools and libraries with her new rescue dog, Sunny – who was born with the same disability as Smiley. Together they are spreading the message of “See With Your Heart.” In her presentation, they discuss about being born different, overcoming adversity, working hard to achieve your goals, anti-bullying, and giving back. Joanne and Sunny will share with you the impact Smiley had on so many, and ways children and adults connected with him. Through her presentation you will see how blind dogs are able to help us all become more nonjudgmental and accepting. Recommended for ages 5+
