COVID-19 and

We hope you and your loved ones are staying safe during these challenging times!  It was not that long ago that we celebrated together at the Sheraton Hotel in February, 2020.

Long term COVID-19 restrictions on meetings and events do not yet exist, and will not exist in a timeline that matches our planning requirements for the 2021 Reading for the Love of It conference.  As such we have been moving forward with securing next year’s  speakers and authors.   

2021 is our 45th Annual Conference and we have decided to Celebrate Canada!  The conference will take place on Thursday, February 18th and Friday, February 19th, at the Sheraton Centre Hotel, in downtown Toronto.  We are pleased to be bringing in a few favourite speakers from the USA, but we plan to highlight a broad base of Canadian talent in our programme. To date, we have many beloved speakers, past and new, that you will be thrilled to hear.  

If COVID-19 continues to challenge our efforts to host the conference in February next year, we will present the 2021 conference in a virtual format.  Speakers are being asked for their flexibility and so far all have agreed to participate at Reading for the Love of It next year, regardless of the platform.  Authors, literacy experts, and teachers are quite simply The Best!

Whether we meet again in-person or on-line, the EYS Reading Association promises you that we will continue to host teachers in Canada with the highest standard of professional development that you have all come to expect from us!

Stay well and stay safe!
