Summer Literacy Conference for Educators

Literacy in the 21st Century: Engaging and Motivating Lifelong Readers

Tuesday, June 20, 2017

The California Reading and Literature Project at California Lutheran University would like to invite you to our annual CRLP Summer Literacy Conference, featuring our 2017 Keynote Speaker, Donalyn Miller!

Donalyn Miller


In her popular book, The Book Whisperer, Donalyn Miller reflects on her journey of becoming a reading teacher and describes how she inspires and motivates her middle school students to read 40 or more books a year. In her latest book, Reading in the Wild, she collects responses from 900 adult readers and uses this information to teach lifelong reading habits to her students. An upper elementary and middle school teacher in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, she was a finalist for Texas Elementary Teacher of the Year in 2011. She co-founded the community blog, The Nerdy Book Club, and co-hosts the monthly Twitter chat #titletalk. Her articles about teaching and reading have appeared in publications such as Education Week Teacher, The Reading Teacher, Educational Leadership and The Washington Post. She currently serves as Scholastic Book Fairs' Manager of Independent Reading and Outreach.
