Join us for a spectacular presentation by Laura Schroff, the author of the #1 New York Times and international bestseller, An Invisible Thread, as she introduces her new book, Angels on Earth, and Dr. Dale Atkins, the bestselling author of The Kindness Advantage: Cultivating Compassionate and Connected Children.  Both women have “lived a life of kindness” as they each present their individual heartfelt stories on this fascinating subject. When An Invisible Thread became an International Bestseller, thousands of readers sent Laura their own inspirational stories.  Laura has collected these compelling poignant stories in Angels on Earth which takes its name from Laura’s belief that “if we honor the invisible thread connections in our lives, we can become Angels on Earth for each other.” Laura weaves the stories together with her own personal reflections on how kindness can bring the divine to earth and how these stories have changed her.
