Celebration of Literacy
"A book only does its magic when it is open in the hands of a parent who is sitting there with a child going through it. This is why all of these programs that are associated with Wisconsin Literacy do what they do."
Dr. Dipesh Navsaria
2018 Celebration of Literacy Keynote Speaker
Wisconsin Literacy celebrates adults who worked hard to get better jobs, to educate themselves, to understand English and American culture, to support their children in school and to end the cycle of low literacy.
The Celebration of Literacy event honors their courage and the efforts of literacy advocates across the state.
