My interview with ‘Good Morning San Diego’ morning show

The audience on the ‘Good Morning San Diego’ show got a sneak peak at my comic, which tells readers about bullying and what they can do about it. Here is the clip of the show Nancy Silberkleit on GMSD – KUSI 

I use comics to share important messages and make readers aware of relevent issues like anti-bullying, pollution and obesity. The message in ‘Rise Above’ is never let anyone define who they want you to be. You know who you are. Be proactive in your life.

The Foundation is developing a series of educational comic books that focus on these issues and encourage literacy and confidence so that youth can become positive influences on their peers.

Humane Society and Nancy Silberkleit raise awareness for anti-bullying

At the 5th Annual Toast to the Humane Society of New York, held in March, I joined prominent journalists, fashion designers, government officials and ‘wall streeters’ to raise awareness for animals that are abused and abandoned. Many of the guests enjoyed the evening with their cuddly pets and focused efforts on placing abused and abandoned animals. The evening was a success, as all of the dogs available for adoption found homes.

Often, it’s the same bullies, that bully animals and the people around them. There is a natural tie-in to build awareness for anti-bullying in schools AND with animals. The voices for anti-bullying speak to protect all humans AND animals from feeling threatened, uncomfortable or scared from someone trying to intimidate or control you.

East Hampton Library Hosts 7th Annual Authors Night

Authors Night is a lavish fundraiser to benefit the East Hampton Library.  Beginning in 2005 with a handful of dinners and a few hundred attendees, it has grown to be the premier literary event of the Hamptons with over 160 authors and more than 1,000 people in attendance. Seven years ago, Nancy Silberkleit sparked the interest and helped launched the first event at the East Hampton Library. Silberkleit, Co-CEO of Archie Comic Publications, will be at the 7th Annual Authors Night, being held on August 11, 2012. All proceeds go directly to the Library.

The evening begins under the tent at the East Hampton Library with fabulous hors d’oeuvres and wine. Guests will meet the authors, buy their books and have them inscribed. The most recent titles for each author are available for purchase at the event. Guests can also bring their own books to have them inscribed.

From there, the evening continues as some of the authors discuss their most recent book at dinner parties held in private homes throughout the Hamptons.

Every title — past and present —  written by our guest authors can be inscribed at the event. Don’t forget to bring your books with you.
