Literacy Events and Celebrations

Literacy conferences, advocacy events, celebrations, and other literacy-related special days, around the United States (and sometimes, the world!).

Have an event to include? Please get in touch!
To be considered for inclusion, events should:

  • Have a literacy focus, and
  • Take place in Texas (or have national significance).

Literacy Texas will make the final decision on which events to list in this calendar.

Events below are listed for your convenience; Literacy Texas is not affiliated with all the organizations below and inclusion is not necessarily endorsement. We do our best to keep this page current, but all information should be independently verified.
