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

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.
