Join BCTLA and USC Professor Emeritus Dr. Stephen Krashen, a well-known, international expert on the importance of reading. Dr. Krashen is quick to advocate for school libraries as "the hottest tool in the literacy kit". Dr. Krashen will share insights into free voluntary reading and its importance for children's literacy development, the profound impact of poverty on reading, what international tests of reading can tell educators about reading improvement and the strong connection between second language learning and reading.
