** Important CANCELLATION Announcement ** 

We are sad to advise our 2020 Conference has had to be cancelled as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis. 
Due to many uncertainties, including social distancing restrictions and border closures, we are unable to host our much-loved Celebrate Reading National Conference this year.  We will be working with Eventbrite to issue refunds, and close off the event.

Of course, we must look to the future!  We look forward to announcing our 2021 Celebrate Reading National Conference presenter line-up later this year.

In the meantime, we wish you all good health and wellbeing during these unprecedented times and can’t wait to welcome you to The Literature Centre one day soon.

Warmest wishes,

Lesley and the TLC Team
