‘Fuller House’ star visits with local teens on book tour

Entertainment

KENTWOOD, Mich. (WOOD) — Candace Cameron Bure of “Full House” fame was in West Michigan Thursday to promote her new book.  

She spoke to a sold-out crowd at Baker Book House in Kentwood about “Kind is the New Classy: The Power of Living Graciously.”

Earlier in the evening, she surprised a group of young and teenage girls who didn’t think they were going to be able to see her speak. They talked about what kindness means in their lives and traded examples of acts of kindness that made them feel good.

“It’s about being respectful and having courtesy,” Bure said. “It’s about having empathy and compassion. That’s something I always try to think about when I’m taking to someone I know I’m going to be disagreeing with or having just another viewpoint. When we think of each other from the other side, have empathy for one another and think about our current situation or circumstances, then it softens your heart.”

Bure became a household name in the 1980s and ’90s playing D.J. Tanner in the sitcom “Full House.” She now stars in the Netflix spinoff “Fuller House.”
