Dear Elementary Literacy Conference Participants,

With utmost disappointment, we regret to inform you that the Elementary Literacy Conference has been cancelled for this year. The children’s author, Laura Numeroff, recently notified us that she is seriously ill and unable to travel. At this late date, it makes it impossible to get a similar, noteworthy replacement author.

We are already planning for next year’s conference. Please save April 7, 2017. Our author will be Anne Sibley O'Brien presenting on the topic of multi-cultural, immigration and being welcoming of differences. You will also see the newly renovated Schindler Education Center.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.
