Kent Denver is delighted to welcome author Julie Lythcott-Haims as our first Walker Wellness Speaker Series speaker of the 2022–23 school year. Her presentation for parents and guardians is open to the public and will be held at Kent Denver School's Anschutz Family Theatre on Tuesday, September 20 at 6:30 p.m.
"Julie was tremendously inspiring when she spoke to our community in 2018, and we are so happy to have her back!" said Associate Head of School Priscilla Scobie. "Her advice on how to raise happy and healthy young adults comes from her work as a Dean of Students at Stanford and from her own experiences as a parent. She is not to be missed!"
