New York City principal Shelley Harwayne and some of her New Manhattan School staff members will share ways to inspire children to lead "rigorous lives" as readers and writers at a District 203 conference in September. The conference is one of two fall events sponsored by the Jeanine Nicarico Memorial Fund for Literacy, an education grant-awarding organization that commemorates Jeanine Nicarico, a fifth-grader slain in 1983.
Harwayne, author of Lasting Impressions: Weaving Literature Into the Writing Workshop, is a national keynote speaker and serves as a consultant to school districts.

The conference will be held Saturday, Sept. 26, at Naperville Central High School, 440 W. Aurora Ave. The community may register on a first-come, first-serve basis through Sept. 18 at (630) 416-6349 (Lynda Roy) or at River Woods Elementary School, 2607 River Woods Drive.

The cost is $55.
