Author Visit: Youth Literacy

Join Learn to Earn Dayton and the Early Grade Literacy Collaborative on Thursday, May 4, at 5 p.m. for a presentation from Maya Payne Smart, author of Reading for Our Lives: A Literacy Action Plan from Birth to Six.

Ms. Smart will equip audiences with evidence-based information and hands-on strategies designed to inform and inspire.

The event is free, but registration is required due to limited space.

Educators who work with students birth through third grade, families and caregivers, and community organizations that serve youth will all benefit from the lively discussion and valuable information. A book signing will follow.

Following the author event, the Early Grade Literacy Collaborative will kick off a book group as the community explores the themes introduced. (Note: the author visit is free and open to the public; books will be available for sale. Participation in the subsequent book discussion group is not required.)
