Blog Status: Quiet

Dear Readers,

As you can see, I’m no longer updating this blog with much regularity. I’m leaving it in place here on my website because it’s a useful (to me, at least) archive of posts from 2008 to 2012, mostly relating to my first book, Whatever It Takes, and the Harlem Children’s Zone.

I’m still regularly posting new information about my books, articles, and speaking engagements, but I’m posting it elsewhere. Some links for those updates:

  1. Found your book based on a recommendation of a friend and fellow educator. It is wonderful and speaks to my personal journey as a foster child and a survivor of all forms of abuse. Thank you for the work that you do. My friend has gave me the name “Grit” even before your book based on my life events. My book. If not for Dreams: Memoirs of a Foster Child is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble…Your book confirms the “hidden power of character.” Thank you.

    Thanks for your comment, Debraha. I’m glad the book resonated with your own experience.

  3. Hi, I am looking for a Co-Author of a book about the kids entrepreneurship program I founded two years ago, Ken Academy
    After reading your book I think that the story of KEN NGO can be an interesting project for you.

    Regards, Liviu Lepadatu
