Project LIT Community: Just Read It

Dr. Jarred Amato and his Maplewood High School students founded Project LIT Community in August 2016 with the goal of eliminating book deserts and promoting a love of reading in Nashville. Over the past three years, they have turned the class project into a national movement—one step, one book, and one conversation at a time. I will walk attendees through the Project LIT journey and provide strategies and resources to transform literacy in all schools and communities.
