#NCTE19 We Are Here

Is there any atmosphere more euphoric than the National Council of Teachers of English conference? It gets no better than pairing educators, dedicated to nurturing the love of reading and writing, with authors who…well, are dedicated to nurturing the love of reading and writing.
