“For centuries if not forever, children have bullied each other, and for almost as long, adults have mostly ignored them,” Slate senior editor Emily Bazelon writes in her anti-bullying treatise Sticks and Stones. Tonight, Bazelon appears in conversation with Stranger editorial director Dan Savage, whose It Gets Better Project has permanently changed the discussion about bullying. (When Republican politicians start claiming they’re being bullied by gay-rights advocates, that’s how you know you’ve won.) We’ve waited millennia for this conversation to happen, but now that it’s finally taking place, expect things to change quickly. (Town Hall, 1119 Eighth Ave, townhallseattle.org, 7:30 pm, $5)
