Please join us for a conversation-changing look at how literacy and reading aloud, in particular, make adults and children happier, healthier, less stressed and more closely connected — even as technology pulls in the other direction. Faegre Drinker is proud to host British Robinson, CEO of the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy (BBF), and Meghan Cox Gurdon, author and children’s book reviewer for the Wall Street Journal, for a conversation about the benefits of literacy and reading aloud, especially during uncertain and challenging times.
British will highlight the work of the BBF and how literacy is linked to better health, greater civic engagement and higher earnings in the labor market. Meghan will share insights from her book, The Enchanted Hour: The Miraculous Power of Reading Aloud in the Age of Distraction, and how reading aloud consoles, uplifts and invigorates at every age.
Faegre Drinker partners Mary Devlin Capizzi, Teresa A. Griffin and Maureen Donahue Hardwick will co-host this discussion and facilitate a lively Q&A session.
As the fall approaches, treat yourself to an engaging conversation that will offer helpful and practical insights to busy people of all ages. The first 150 guests to register and attend the event will receive a copy of Meghan’s book. Register today!
