Twitter Chat Recap: #G2Great with Kylene Beers & Bob Probst on Forged by Reading

On February 18, award-winning authors and speakers Kylene Beers and Bob Probst joined the Literacy Lenses #G2Great Twitter chat to talk about critical topics from their new book, Forged by Reading: The Power of a Literate Life.

During the chat, participants discussed the critical role literacy has in supporting a healthy democracy, the responsibility we have as readers to decide what ideas shape us, the history of power and suppression as it relates to literacy, and what it actually means to live a literate life.

You can view the full #G2Great Twitter chat hosted by Dr. Mary Howard, Fran McVeigh, Jenn Hayhurst, Valinda Kimmel, Dr. Towanda Harris, and Brent Gilson, here. You can also read a reflection on the chat by Brent Gilson, here.
