Ellie will be a guest speaker at this year’s Celebration of Reading in Dallas, Texas. “Last year, funds raised from the annual Celebration of Reading made it possible to continue supporting more than 140 family literacy programs and groundbreaking literacy initiatives throughout the country that provide parents and children – including nearly 5,000 families right here in North Texas – with access to educational opportunities so they can better their own lives and pass these important skills down to the next generation,” reports the website. We’re honored to be part of this powerful event.
