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 John 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
