Announcing #NCTE19 Speakers
 
NCTE’s Convention is the most historic annual literacy convening for teachers and educators. In this, the 109th meeting, we're excited to share a speaker lineup that celebrates the strong relationship between authors and educators that is a hallmark of the event. Note that this list will continue to grow over the summer, but we couldn't keep it a secret any longer!

A Few Highlights
 
Kick off your Convention with a full day of learning on Thursday.
Last year, we piloted having sessions on Thursday afternoon and saw such success that we've implemented a full day of programming beginning at 9:30 a.m. Be sure to plan your travel so you can join us!
 
Enjoy uninterrupted Exhibit Hall time.
It can be hard to find time to visit our extensive Exhibit Hall when you're engrossed in learning from education experts around the country. That's why this year we'll be offering dedicated Exhibit Hall time from 4:45 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Friday evening. Be sure to stick around for the All-Attendee Event starting at 6:45 p.m.
 
Get ready to Build Your Stack!
We'll be celebrating texts and providing inspiration for building classroom libraries with our Build Your Stack initiative. There will be 35 unique sessions featuring authors and educators talking about their favorite books and how to use them in the classroom beginning Friday morning in the Exhibit Hall.
