CANTON — Cherokee High School English teacher Dennis Jolley is moderating a panel discussion on suicide and bullying tonight at 6 p.m. in the high school auditorium.

The event is open to the public, Jolley said, and will feature New York Times Best Seller author Jay Asher, author of “Thirteen Reasons Why.”

A panel of experts in the field from suicide prevention/anti-bullying organizations, a member of the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office and school police will be part of the panel discussion, Jolley said.

“With the tragedy of suicide that happens so much in our schools and schools around the nation, I think it’s important to get the word out,” Asher said.

Asher will speak to students during assembly earlier in the day, and be a part of a lunch discussion with about 150 students who have read his book, as part of the day’s events, Jolley said.

Cherokee High School is at 930 Marietta Highway in Canton.
