Nurturing Readers, Nurturing Ourselves: Dinner and Inspiration with ENYSLMA and ACARC

Join us for our next event, which is co-sponsored with ENYSLMA!

Catch a firefly of inspiration from Coleen Paratore! Coleen is the author of 20+ books including the Big Book about Being Big, a SEL picture book, The Wedding Planner’s Daughter for Middle-Grade, and Dear Writer for adults. Join us as Coleen Paratore discusses her inspiration for reading and writing and will guide us as educators, and as readers and writers ourselves.

Additionally, participants will enjoy a dinner buffet, the company of fellow teachers and school librarians, with a presentation on impacting our students. There will also be the opportunity to win books and one lucky attendee will win an overnight at Coleen's Vermont lake house.
