A Different Drummer Books invites you to hear author Paula Todd, Monday, Feb 23

Note: Paula used to be my editor back in ancient times when I was a reporter for the Excalibur at York University. It's great to see she's doing so well as an author. – Brian

We greet you again from A Different Drummer Books, proudly announcing the extraordinary guest joining us for our next Engaging Ideas event with our esteemed partners at Burlington Public Library:

EXTREME MEAN: Trolls, Bullies and Predators Online
Monday, February 23,   7pm

Paula Todd, nationally celebrated investigative journalist in law and politics, consummate broadcaster and insightful author, comes to Burlington for a provocative, riveting presentation focusing on a prevalent and alarming social issue.

With Extreme Mean: Trolls, Bullies and Predators Online, Paula Todd rigorously examines invasive and malicious internet activity, the often heartbreaking and tragic human consequences, and the possibilities for security and change.

"Todd puts her skills as a writer, lawyer and investigative reporter to work in an attempt to uncover what is at the heart of a global phenomenon....It's not just a relentless series of stories about the dark side the Internet.  Todd has dug behind the headlines to look at what motivates this kind of behaviour and what can be done to tackle it." --Dominic Lenton
