Starting July 7, 2019 we will be examining together Workshopping the Canon by Mary Styslinger.

We’re inviting all current NCTE members to participate in a month-long discussion via a private Facebook group where they’ll have the chance to discuss ideas from the book, ask questions of the author and contributors, and create new resources together.

Sign up today!
