Passionate About Reading

When you hear the words Passionate About Reading spoken in a room filled with teachers and librarians, the name Steve Layne is likely to roll quickly off of someone's tongue. Whether he's keynoting a library conference in New Hampshire, training pre-service teachers at Judson University in Illinois, presenting a seminar in Alaska, talking with school children on Guam, or just going one-on-one with a new acquaintance at the local Starbucks - his contagious love for books spills out and over into everything he does. He is, in the words of a recent seminar participant, "the most powerful instrument of change to cross my path in 30+ years working in the schools."

Steve's mission statement is simple and hasn’t changed since he began speaking as an educator and author several years ago. "Building lifetime readers is what it’s all about for reading teachers and librarians. If we aren’t doing that - what are we doing? We have to be about this business with every fiber of our being. Infectious - that’s what they should call us! Professionally speaking, from my perspective at least, there isn’t time for much else."
