Educators from across the country gather next week at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, in Washington, D.C., for the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) annual convention, to be held on November 20–23. This year’s focus is “story as the landscape of knowing.”
Heinemann has put together an exciting lineup of events featuring our authors. We invite you to join Heinemann for a series of book signings, tweetups (Twitter meet-ups), and Twitter chats.
Thomas Newkirk, in Minds Made for Stories, writes, “As humans, as time-bound mortals, we must tell stories.” Newkirk and more than five dozen other Heinemann authors will lead workshops and take part in roundtable discussions during the four-day convention.
You’ll also have the opportunity to meet a number of authors in person at book signings in the Heinemann booth, #734.
