The Newton Partnership is holding a weeklong Circle of Respect community campaign from March 14-20 which is designed to promote respect, prevent cyber-bullying, and promote internet safety.

As part of campaign, the Newton Free Library and The Newton Partnership are co-sponsoring a city-wide read of Rosalind Wiseman´s latest book, BOYS, GIRLS AND OTHER HAZARDOUS MATERIALS. The novel is written from Wiseman´s expert perspective with honest prose, capturing the humor, tone and drama of the high school experience.

Community members are invited to read the book (which is available at the Newton Free Library, in school libraries, and in book stores) and attend a special event at the Newton Free Library on March 17 at 7:00 pm when Rosalind Wiseman will lead a discussion, which will be followed by a book signing. Parents are especially encouraged to read the book with their children, ages 12 and up.

She is the New York Times bestselling author of Queen Bees & Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends, and the New Realities of Girl World; Queen Bee Moms & Kingpin Dads; and Owning Up Curriculum: Empowering Adolescents to Confront Social Cruelty, Bullying, and Injustice. Wiseman writes a monthly column for Family Circle and is a frequent guest on the Today Show. She has been profiled in The New York Times, People,
