Speaking at "For the Love of Reading" conference

I've been asked to be a presenter at UVU's "For the Love of Reading" conference sponsored by the UVU Forum on Engaged Reading.  The conference will be held on February 17-18, 2012 at the Zermatt Resort in Midway, UT.

This conference brings together parents, teachers, and librarians.  No other conference in the country brings together these three groups to connect and promote reading.

As I was getting ready for my first day of kindergarten, I started bawling.  My mom asked what was wrong and I sobbed, "I can't go to school!  I don't know how to read!"

That was soon remedied, and I have been an avid reader ever since.  
I have spent untold hours in libraries as both patron and employee, was a secondary English and German teacher, and have been a mom for going on 16 years now.  So I might just have an insight or two I'll be able to add and look forward to the opportunity.

I hope to reconnect with old friends and meet new ones at the conference!  Save the date!
