The National Book Foundation’s third annual Why Reading Matters conference returns on June 7 for a full day of presentations focused on reading without boundaries. Why Reading Matters is designed to bring together educators, non-profit administrators, librarians, academics, publishing professionals, writers, and literary activists of all kinds to discover and share ways to welcome more readers into their community.

Why Reading Matters: Reading Without Boundaries will feature author appearances, a celebration of the 2018 Innovations in Reading prize winner, and a variety of breakout sessions focused on how we can use books to bridge divides, create new connections, and deepen understandings.
