Keynote Speakers

At NCTE’s Annual Convention you’ll have the opportunity to hear from inspiring speakers who care about literacy as much as you do. The art of teaching and learning writing, reading, speaking, and listening is multifaceted, complex, and rich with possibility. That’s why each year we select keynote speakers who bring a range of perspectives to the mic: 2017 is no exception. We’re thrilled to share this stellar lineup with you.

Stay tuned for more announcements in the coming months. #NCTE17 will feature hundreds of authors who speak, sign books, present sessions, and attend events. You’ll have many opportunities to meet your literary heroes in person.
