In a time of budget cuts and smaller staffs, how can we promote reading in our schools? How do we enlist the help of teachers and give them the tools necessary to be successful? Learn about a successful professional development program for teachers entitled, "Authors, Books, and Coffee" that turned participating teachers into an effective Reader's Advisory Group. A sample session will be provided with links to a website with the materials of the program available online. In addition, examples of follow up support will be discussed. Testimonials of teacher participants who modified their style of reading motivation and book talking based on this program will also be shared.
