I’m going! Are you?

I love the thrill of a conference!

I love attending with my friends!

I love meeting new people!

I love meeting famous people!

I love purchasing books!

Yes, I’m going! I’ll be attending the Scholastic Reading Summit this summer in Washington, D.C. I attended last year so when I found out the event would be hosted “locally” again this year I knew I couldn’t pass it up.

What I like most about this conference is that it is completely centered around independent reading and the presenters who host the event are phenomenal. Donalyn Miller and┬áJohn Schumacher are just two of the speakers that I look forward to hearing. Even Clifford the Big Red Dog is there! While this conference is just a one day conference, it will end up being a bit of a “girls’ getaway”. Last year a few of us went a day early, treated ourselves to a spa treatment, and enjoyed a relaxing dinner. We plan on doing the same thing again this year. I hope I will see some Slice of Life bloggers on my travels. Don’t hesitate to leave a comment or a send me a tweet so we can meet up in person!

I would also love to hear if you are attending any other conferences in the near future, so please do share!

great friends + great books = a great conference
