New book features Children First

Children First and St. Louis Park are featured in Thomas L. Friedman’s new book, Thank You for Being Late: An optimist’s guide to thriving in the age of accelerations, which was released this past week. The author and New York Times columnist, grew up in St. Louis Park. As Tom considered the dizzying changes in the world, he gives us permission to pause and consider what’s going on. That’s what he did at the end of the book. Tom revisited his hometown to see if the “topsoil of trust” that was in place during his formative years continues to guide the community.

Hear what Tom Friedman has to say about St. Louis Park in a video recorded earlier this year.
