Parents and educators who use this book will be raising children who love to learn… the most important outcome may not just be how many books children have read, but how many conversations they’ve had about them.”
— Milton Chen, Ph.D. | Executive Director, The George Lucas Educational Foundation
In Reading Together, Frankenstein’s enthusiasm for igniting children’s love of reading is infectious. Her strategies are practical and actionable, and her book recommendations are a wonderful resource.”
— Jeff Wetzler, Teach For America

Conference Presentation Application For 2011
The first-ever Prisoner’s Family Conference held in El Paso, TX in February 2009 was considered a resounding success by all in attendance. The conference provided vital information for improving the quality of life for prisoner’s families during and following the incarceration of a loved one, and offered ample networking opportunities with those from across the country concerned for the prisoner’s family and the reintegrating prisoner. The 2nd Annual Prisoner’s Family Conference held in Orlando, Florida expanded these opportunities and confirmed the national interest in the prison family. Based on feedback from conference attendees, the 2011 conference to be held in Portland, Oregon will be extended to 3 days.
Planning meeting with community stakeholders to develop a plan to address challenges facing our most at-risk populations.
Youth work with Kevin Epps to create a video encouraging participation in the 2010 Census.
