Conversation with author of “The Skin You Live In”

Join the Clinton Foundation on Tuesday, Sept. 1, for our next Bridge Builders conversation with author Michael Tyler. His award-winning children’s picture book, The Skin You Live In, delivers an important message of social acceptance to young readers. He will discuss the lessons presented in the book – friendship, acceptance, self-esteem, and diversity – and how an experience with his young son led him to write it.

President Clinton said, “In the end, all that matters are the builders. And after the builders are forgotten, all that remains are the ripples of what they’ve built.” Bridge Builders presents the stories of distinguished change makers, thought leaders, and influencers. This series is presented by the Clinton Foundation and sponsored by Coulson Oil.

Each conversation allows our featured speakers to share their insights on important challenges, opportunities, and issues of the day. Every person in the audience will be encouraged to learn more or do something that adds to the bridge that, together, we are building to the future.
