General Session & All-Attendee Event Speakers

At NCTE’s first-ever virtual 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: 2020 is no exception. We’re thrilled to share this stellar lineup with you.

Stay tuned for more announcements in the coming months. #NCTE20 will feature various prominent authors who will speak, motivate, and inspire us in these trying times. Times listed for Live and Scheduled Sessions are in Eastern Time.

Keynote Speakers

Keynote speakers will speak during our traditional meal function times (breakfasts and luncheons). This year these events are included in your convention registration and do not require a ticket and additional fee.
