Virk parents speak at SFU
To mark the simultaneous Restorative Justice and Bullying Awareness Weeks (Nov. 16-22), SFU criminology professor Brenda Morrison is inviting the public to listen in when Manjit and Suman Virk speak to her Introduction to Restorative Justice class on Monday, Nov. 17. The parents of murdered teen Reena Virk will talk about their experiences with BC's educational, social services, and criminal justice systems during the free lecture to be held at the Burnaby campus in ASSC 10081 from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. The event is open to everyone, but seating is limited. Manjit Virk's new book, Reena: A Father's Story, will also be available for signing. For more information: brendam@sfu.ca or 778.782.7627.

Frog or prince?
You've got to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince--or do you? Not if SFU Executive MBA student Kaycee Jane has her way. The single mom and author of Frog or Prince? The Smart Girl's Guide to Boyfriends wanted to help her teen daughter avoid toads, so she wrote a book that shows "how to build a bar a guy has to jump over to get into your life in a serious way." The self-published title follows the relationship of four fictional women while discussing needs, consequences and choices in relationships. Using tools such as the Frog/Prince list, readers can hope to discover "how much of each our guy brings to the relationship. It closes the gaps between what you hope and want to believe, and what is. When you are aware of what you deserve, you start to make better choices."
