Following up and thanks after the All About Reading event on 2/27

The "All About Reading" event at Kozminski on Saturday, February 27, was a big success. We're so grateful to our panel presenters -- Maggie Walsh, of STEP Literacy; Jason Driver, of the Chicago Public Library; and Lisa Perez from CPS -- for giving us so much useful information to help parents with supporting their children as readers.
