*Third Wednesday of Every Month

9-11 am


The CLA Confab is the premier monthly gathering in Chicago to showcase what’s hot in literacy.

In pursuit of our vision of a 100% literate Chicago, the Confab brings together speakers across our member network and the city to share top-level highlights from their work, connect around shared goals, and work toward collaborative solutions to the persisting gaps in literacy facing our city today. This event is free and open to the general public.


Want to present at or learn more about taking part in the Confab? Please email Erin McCann.

*Excluding holidays, in which case the Confab will be held on the second Wednesday of the month.
