Islamic Center of San Diego - ICSD says
Join us and meet the author of Chicken Soup for the Soul, Linda K Williams.
Fee:$5 per person

Linda K. Williams was born in Toledo, Ohio, and has lived in San Diego since 5th grade. She has a BA in Linguistics and an MA in Education/ Reading.

She taught Kindergarten-6th grades in English and Spanish 1973-2013, and found great satisfaction in teaching Reading Recovery ( in English and Spanish to the neediest 1st grade readers in inner-city schools 1994-2007, helping them to joyfully declare, "I can do it!"

Then, after the Columbine School shootings in 1999, Linda felt compelled to bring the message of nonviolence to as wide an audience as possible, and was convinced that a Chicken Soup for the Soul book would be the best possible venue. So, she contacted CSSE with a proposal for a compilation which became Chicken Soup for the Soul - Stories for a Better World. She was thrilled when a volunteer story reader/rater thanked her, saying "Reading these stories has helped me see that there are so many ways to solve conflicts without resorting to violence!" What a heart-warming, hope-filled moment!

More recently, Linda has been devoting her time and talents to helping bring peace and Restorative Justice to the City Heights neighborhood of San Diego.
