Diane Frankenstein, author of Reading Together, Everything You Need to Know to Raise a Child Who Loves to Read,  and a champion for strategic literacy, held a workshop at GCC on Nov. 14 with almost 100 family and children’s librarians from across Connecticut. The conference, designed to provide both inspiration and practical knowledge on the value of conversational reading and parent engagement, included remarks from Stefan Pryor, Connecticut’s Commissioner of Education, who welcomed the group and reiterated the important connection between conversational reading, early learning and school success.
