R.J. Palacio, our 2018 Peace Hero

R. J. Palacio is the author/illustrator of children’s bestselling novel Wonder, which promotes a message of kindness, and has inspired the Choose Kind movement. The book was later adapted to film, where the story’s important message spread to an even larger audience!

We are thrilled to honor R.J. Palacio during an intimate and WONDERous event. We hope you can join us!
