NORWALK, Conn. -- Norwalk Library will hold an author talk and book signing with Jerry Craft, author of “The Offenders: Saving the World While Serving Detention!”, on Oct. 12 at 4:30 p.m.
The book tells the story of a freak accident that gives five middle school bullies super powers. But instead of transforming into super heroes, they take on the characteristics of the kids who they bully.
The Offenders tackles the difficult topic of youth bullying and hopes to teach children a lesson in compassion.
“I wanted to do a book about the kids doing the bullying, those who were bullies and didn’t know it,” Jerry Craft said in a statement.
