Follett School Solutions (Follett) is calling for proposals for 45-minute, in-person sessions to be presented at the 2023 ReadingCon conference, hosted by Follett in Naperville, Illinois, scheduled on the eve of the ALA Annual Conference & Expo in nearby Chicago.

ReadingCon proposals will be accepted from teachers, librarians, principals, superintendents, curriculum coordinators, literacy coaches, and more. ReadingCon will be convenient for both locals and visitors who will be traveling to the Chicago area for the ALA Annual Conference.

Follett is bringing together educators to discuss trending topics in today's preK-12 schools. The event will focus on literacy and diversity and how to make a difference in the lives of students. This inspiring professional development event will feature meaningful sessions that address key topics facilitated by teachers and librarians in education alongside high-profile authors to promote discussion.

Proposals should include at least one learning objective and address best practices and successes in leading literary achievement. Proposals must be submitted by 4 p.m. CST on Friday, March 10. Submissions will only be accepted via online form.
