Featuring Keynote speaker: S. F. Hochman 

Writer/Motivator/Game Guy/Fun Guy (but not a mushroom), S. F. Hochman will encourage you to make the most of your talents and abilities by letting it RIP - Resist… Insist… Persist! How to RIP It Good!

The author of nine books written for kids/DREAMED UP WITH kids will share anecdotes from his own life and the lives of some inspiring gifted and talented people that he has met and worked with.  Hochman will also introduce you to several young heroic characters from his books who RESISTED being bullied or forced to conform, INSISTED on standing up for their rights, and PERSISTED against great odds to achieve their goals. He’ll make you laugh.  He may even make you cry… but it'll be in a good way.  Most importantly, he’ll motivate you to LEARN by DOING.

After decades of writing speeches and video scripts for international motivational speakers and Fortune 500 companies, Hochman began writing for kids and WITH KIDS, an outgrowth of his school volunteering. He addresses bullying, peer pressure, and self expression in his books, which include laZy, craZy & amazing; Mr. Hocklenutty's Magic Glasses; WATER Comes; Mister Fancy Dancer; UNITED WE RISE!; and THE CURIOUS RISE OF DEZTINEE SNEARTS. Check the NJAGC website on how to pre-order books!
