"Pensacola: See the Beauty in Books" Conference
Start Date: 4/21/2017 All Day
End Date: 4/22/2017

Event Description:
The Pensacola Book Festival will be held in the Spring of 2017, as advocates of literacy in our great city of Pensacola work together to celebrate the theme, “Pensacola: See the Beauty in Books.” The Early Learning Coalition, University of West Florida Department of Teacher Education and Educational Leadership and the Chamber of Commerce and additional organizations are partnering to host the event at the UWF Conference Center on Saturday, April 22, 2017.

On Saturday, April 22, 2017, the Early Learning Coalition and the University of West Florida Department of Teacher Education and Educational Leadership will host a professional development conference for educators at the UWF Conference Center on the UWF Pensacola Campus. The conference will feature keynote speaker Matthew de le Pena, the author of "Last Stop on Market Street." His book, recently awarded the Newbery Honor for Best Book of the Year, inspired the festival's theme and is a perfect fit for our city. "Last Stop on Market Street" has received high accolades for its message of hope and encouragement of using quality time with family to discover the many beauties in the world around us.

In addition to our speaker, the conference will host breakout sessions on Friday and Saturday, discussing various topics such as story telling, public libraries, school libraries, community outreach, using technology in teaching reading and writing, book talks and more.
