Promotions & Events NCTE (Re)Inventing the Future of English

Boston may have just won the World Series but the city is sure to hit another home run when it welcomes some superstar teachers this month! The National Council of Teachers of English gathers in the Red Sox city to take on the topic of “(Re)Inventing the Future of English.” And Listening Library is proud to be joining the conversation.

Stop by Booth #905 and meet Jodie and Kristen who will be sharing CD samplers, classroom posters, and exciting collections that feature non-fiction favorites and other not-to-be-missed Common Core titles. Plus, one of our favorite authors, Laurie Halse Anderson, is a convention keynote speaker. Find more fun details below:

Grab a galley!

We’ll have limited copies of the following titles; read them before you listen!

Pick a poster!
Celebrate the classics with a beautiful poster featuring original art created just for our audiobook recording! This time we’re sharing the magic of Brian Floca’s THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ and Noelle Stevenson’s THE TIME MACHINE illustrations.

Laurie Halse Anderson headshotLaurie Halse Anderson SPEAKs!

**Whether or not you can make it the luncheon, you can always listen in on Laurie’s wonderful interview conducted earlier this fall by BOT marketing director Cheryl Herman. They revisit the studio where SPEAK was recorded almost 15 years ago and chat about everything from bullying, to writing for teens; Laurie also reads her incredibly powerful poem, Listen. Don’t miss it!
