TD National Reading Summit III is the third and final summit in the series. The summit will kick-off with an exciting free public event at the Wong Theatre inside Goldcorp Centre for the Performing Arts, with keynote speaker, Marcelo Suárez-Orozco. During this summit attendees will review a draft reading plan and participate in facilitated group discussions on how best to shape this plan and move it forward as a grassroots movement to make reading a priority in Canada. Throughout the two daysdynamic speakers and panel discussions will provide food for thought. Work has already begun on a campaign to increase awareness of reading for the joy of it. This will be unveiled at the TD National Reading Summit III.
