Boys Who Rocked the World offers an updated, comprehensive collection of inspirational, engaging profiles of 45 amazing young men, from King Tut to Will Smith, all of who made their mark before turning 20.

Join us May 10–12 at the University of Nebraska Omaha, as we explore the impact these collaborations are having on the institutions, communities, and kids they serve.


  1. Debbie Miller says:

    I truly wish that new and old authors would stop using so much profanity in their books now. I, along with our parents, find it very offensive and unnecessary. The books that are geared toward middle school and younger should at least have edited copies, yet the publishers say they are uable to add a language flag for books on their sites. It is because they know we won’t buy the books with the sexual content or profanity. It is getting harder and harder to find appropriate books for these kids.
