Meet Dr. Gwenn at Barnes and Noble November 16!

Have you had a chance to flip through CyberSafe so far? Do you have any questions for me on the world of kids on line or how your kids are dealing with their “digital stuff”? If so, if you live in Massachusetts or in driving distance of Framingham, MA, I hope you’ll swing by Barnes and Noble on November 16 at 7pm for my author event.

I’ll be talking about CyberSafe as well as the hot digital and cyber issues in the news, having a QA to make sure your questions are answered and ending the evening with a book signing. I’ve had people ask me to sign books for their kids, parents, teachers, husbands, wives…with the holidays around the corner, this event is well timed, actually!

I’m really excited about it and looking forward to seeing you and your friends there in just over a week.

Here’s the official flier for more information:
