Here are all the materials you need to prepare for the MLS 2018 business meeting and the accompanying program.
Lisa Lucas is the Executive Director of the National Book Foundation. Prior to joining the Foundation, she served as the Publisher of Guernica, a non-profit online magazine focusing on writing that explores the intersection of art and politics with an international and diverse focus and as Director of Education at the Tribeca Film Institute. Lucas also serves on the literary council of the Brooklyn Book Festival.
Many of you may know Ms. Lucas from her recent appearance on the Great American Read, or from her coverage on NPR and the PBS Newshour. We are delighted that she will be joining us, and we look forward to her talk on the crucial role of libraries in widening the audience for literature.
Lisa will discuss coalition-building, the crucial role that libraries play in widening the audience for literature, and the National Book Foundation's work to expand readership across America.
