Hello Canadian Colleagues
Please find attached the invitation to The Canadian Reception to be held on Sunday, May 11 5:00 – 8:00 pm at La Galerie 5 (second floor), New Orleans Marriott Hotel, 555 Canal Street, New Orleans, LA 70130. Colleagues attending the 59th Annual Conference of the International Reading Association are welcome to attend. This Canadian Reception is hosted due to many Canadian provincial reading associations, local reading councils, special interest groups and Canadian publishing companies. If you are a Canadian in New Orleans for the International Reading Association, I highly recommend you attend. You are guaranteed to meet nice people 🙂
Look for Mike Bowden, our “official” B.C. representative and Garth Brooks, who is so vital in the work of The Canadian Special Interest Group of the International reading Association.
Have fun, eeehhh and tweet throughout the conference to keep us up to date #rdgBC
Note : A brief CNIRAC Meeting will follow after The Canadian Reception.
A Canadian Dinner, for those who wish to attend, is being planned at Olivier’s Creole Restaurant, 204 Decatur Street – just 2 blocks away. http://www.olivierscreole.com Send Garth Brooks your RSVP so he can make reservations.
