Meet the Authors
Each year, we are pleased to welcome many talented authors to the BOOST Conference. Attendees will have an opportunity to pre-purchase keynote speaker books at the time of online registration and have them signed in the exhibit hall during the conference. Due to high demand, we are oftentimes unable to guarantee the availability of books on-site. Additional authors will be selling their books at their booths through the conference.

Lead Fearlessly, Love Hard
Finding Your Purpose and Putting It to Work
Lead Fearlessly, Love Hard offers real, actionable advice for those seeking to change the education system from within. While countless books, articles, and speeches decry the challenges disadvantaged students in low-performing schools face, no one has offered a clear path forward through these challenges—until now.
Author Linda Cliatt-Wayman, principal of Strawberry Mansion High School in Philadelphia, grew up in the same North Philadelphia neighborhood where she now leads and fought every single day for the chance to become a part of the solution. Today, she is a turnaround principal and popular TED Talk speaker who helps children living in poverty achieve more than they ever thought possible. In Lead Fearlessly, Love Hard, she provides hope, optimism, and a call to action to help all students reach their true potential. Steadfast leadership and clear principles can overcome almost anything, and this book shows you how to focus your passion, apply your skills, and lead your students down the path to a better future.
- Discover and develop the leader within
- Take responsibility and move forward every day
- Give each student the critical interaction they crave
- Be a force for real, positive change in neighborhood schools
Highlighting the intersection of strong visionary and strategic thinking with on-the-ground, day-to-day implementation, this narrative-driven guide tells the stories of real students and educators to show how clear principles and strong guidance can turn around schools—and the students they serve.
