In the 2020 Summer Lecture Series, New Haven Reads invited participants from various disciplines, including sociology, linguistics, architecture, and early childhood education. These guest speakers brought numerous different perspectives and research on language, learning, and literacy. You can explore these past lectures on our website. The 2020 series explored the myriad of factors that impact educational access and success, with the goal of enriching our collective understanding of critical and intersectional issues in education and literacy.
We are thrilled to continue these conversations in our 2021 Lecture Series, featuring Stella Betts and David Leven, presenting “Three Ways of Looking at the Free Library” on July 10th at 2:00 PM, as well as Dr. Julie Washington, in “Using Culturally Relevant Reading Materials to Promote Interest in Reading Among Underserved Students” on July 17th at 2:00 PM. Each lecture will be 45 minutes long and free to attend. You can learn more about our speakers and register for each lecture by using our program calendar, navigating to July and selecting the event.
