Description

The National Book Foundation’s second annual Why Reading Matters conference returns on June 15 for a full day of presentations focused on building a new audience for books.

The conference is designed to bring together educators, non-profit administrators, librarians, academics, publishing professionals, writers, and literary activists of all kinds to discover and share ways to welcome more readers into their community.

The conference will feature a keynote presentation by Emma Straub, author and founder of Books Are Magic; a celebration of the 2017 Innovations in Reading prize winner Barbershop Books; a special appearance by National Book Award Finalist Jason Reynolds; and a variety of breakout sessions focused on how we can foster and increase inclusivity among new readers.
