(KAYSVILLE, UT) March 14, 2023—Reading Horizons believes literacy is opportunity. To act on its long-standing commitment to helping all students achieve reading proficiency, the organization today introduced “Let’s Talk Literacy,” a series of free in-person professional learning events for education leaders nationwide.
Let’s Talk Literacy events give administrators an opportunity to learn, collaborate, and share challenges, ideas, and experiences with colleagues.

Bishop, national curriculum consultant at Reading Horizons. “By elevating crucial conversations about the most effective way to get all students reading, we strive to improve reading proficiency and literacy outcomes throughout the country.”
