HPKCAC to sponsor "All About Reading" event at Kozminski on Saturday, February 27

The HPKCAC is sponsoring an "All About Reading" event on Saturday, February 27 from 1pm-3:30pm at Kozminski Community Academy (936 E. 54th Street). 

A panel of three speakers -- Jason Driver, of the Chicago Public Library; Lisa Perez, of Chicago Public Schools; and Maggie Walsh, director of STEP Literacy -- will present information and strategies to parents to help their children become strong readers.

We'll also have a raffle of free books, refreshments, and storytellers to keep children occupied while their parents listen to the speakers. 

There will be time for questions and answers and parents will also have a chance to share strategies with each other.

Everyone is welcome!

  1. If you are looking for an additional speaker, a professor from National Louis University whose expertise is in reading strategies and literacy for youth - particularly special needs youth - would like to participate.

    1. We are waiting for a response from someone, but if this person is unavailable, we may need a third presenter. Please email us at and give us more information about this potential speaker. Thank you!
