TD National Reading Summit: Reading & Democracy (November 12-13)

The TD National Reading Summit will engage participants in crafting a blueprint for a reading Canada. Over two days, delegates will hear from an impressive line-up of speakers from across the country and around the world. Ana Maria Machado (Brazil), Ingrid Bon (Netherlands), Elisa Bonilla (Mexico), Richard C. Anderson (USA), Cory Doctorow (UK/Canada), Tom King (Canada), Charles Pascal (Canada), and others will explore what it means to be a reader in a democratic society and share their research and experience in developing reading promotion programs. Conference sessions will inspire delegates to collaborate and lay the groundwork for new provincial and federal programs that will ultimately foster a reading culture in Canada.

The Summit will take place November 12-13 in the Bronfman Hall at the Royal Ontario Museum (100 Queen’s Park, Toronto). The registration fee is $250 and includes all conference sessions, breakfasts, lunches, breaks and one evening reception. The Summit will also be available via webcast. The registration fee to sign up for the webcast is $100 per site.
