Lester Laminack is coming back to Washington to inspire us with his work in literacy education. Mr. Laminack will be sharing his new book Writers ARE Readers and show us that the way we get our students to be better writers is by using the power of close reading. He will also share with us how read-alouds bring our classrooms alive and are essential to an impactful literacy classroom.

We heard you and have Dan Gemeinhart returning for another engaging booktalk for book lovers of all ages. We gave him more time to share which means more books for our "to-read" list!

Join us for this inspiring day and fill that literacy bucket with educators from around the state!

Five clock hours will be available for $10.

We also have a hotel that has rooms available if needed where our Meet and Greet will be held on Friday night. Our special rate is available through October 20. To make reservations go to: http://hiltongardeninn.hilton.com/en/gi/groups/personalized/P/PAEWAGI-WOCONF-20161104/index.jhtml?WT.mc_id=POG
