An annual event, Camp Read-a-Lot provides a full-day professional development workshop which focuses on literature for youth in grades 2-5. Held regionally, the camp gives educators and librarians alike the opportunity to hear presenters, authors, and illustrators talk about children’s literature and literacy.
The 2016 SELCO Camp Read-A-Lot will be held on Wednesday, August 17, 2016 at the Cascade Meadow Wetlands & Environmental Science Center in Rochester. Participants will have the opportunity to hear from the following speakers:
Lisa Von Drasek – Curator, Children’s Literature Research Collection, Anderson Library, UMN Libraries
Lauren Stringer – Minnesota Children’s Book Author & Illustrator
Participants also will have a chance to read and discuss the children’s literature found on the book lists and even bring suggestions of their own. Check out the Campers Website to register, for more information, and start reading today!
