Presented in partnership by the Conway School District and the Arts Alliance of Northern New Hampshire, this year's conference features Donalyn Miller, author of The Book Whisperer and Reading in the Wild.

In The Book Whisperer, Donalyn reflects on her journey to become 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, Donalyn collects responses from 900 adult readers and uses this information to teach lifelong reading habits to her students.

Donalyn currently facilitates the community blog The Nerdy Book Club and co-writes a monthly column for Scholastic's Principal to Principal Newsletters. Her articles about teaching have appeared in publications including The Reading Teacher, Educational Leadership and The Washington Post.

Staff Development & Continuing Education Credits Available. 

Books will be available for purchase and signing and a raffle will be offered to support future conferences.

Stay to ski, hike or play -- or shop! Participants will receive coupons from North Conway outlets & businesses.
