Texas Literacy Summit Set During TWU Reading Recovery Institute

10/29/04


DENTON — More than 40 million Americans are functionally illiterate, impacting health and economic development as well as education. Addressing literacy as a community issue is the purpose of the Texas Literacy Summit, to be held in Dallas during Texas Woman’s University’s Reading Recovery Institute.

The summit will be held from 5:14 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 18 at the Adam’s Mark Hotel in Dallas. The $15 registration fee includes dinner and a keynote speaker. Tickets are required. For more information, or to register, visit www.twu.edu/o-ll/literacysummit.htm or contact Michael Simmons at msimmons@mail.twu.edu or call (800) 250-7808 or (940) 898-3408.

The summit will link adult/community programs and childhood/school-based programs to encourage conversation about the wide range of efforts available to address the literacy issue. Participants will have the opportunity to learn more about exemplary community literacy programs and to share information about their own experiences.

The summit is sponsored by the TWU College of Professional Education in partnership with Verizon and Dallas Reads.
