    I'm writing to invite you to Literacy Matters! Teaching as an Art, a free half-day conference on teaching in the humanities to be held Saturday, March 23, from 9:00am to – 1:00pm at George Washington University. 

    Literacy Matters! is designed to bring together educators in ELA, history, social studies, and the arts as well as librarians and school administrators to explore possibilities for fostering literacy engagement in the classroom. The event is hosted by PEN/Faulkner Writers in Schools (https://www.penfaulkner.org/education-programs/writers-in-schools/) and the Graduate School of Education and Human Development at George Washington University. 
    The program includes humanities-oriented curriculum development workshops and a Writers in Schools author visit. All participants will receive a free book written by the featured authors. The featured authors are students from Free Minds, authors of The Untold Story of the Real Me. 
    Snacks and beverages will be provided.
