A symposium sponsored by Texas Womans University School of Library and
Information Science and the Texas State Library

Alfie Kohn, author of Punished by Rewards: The Trouble with Gold Stars,
Incentive Plans, As, Praise, and Other Bribes will be the featured
speaker at a day-long symposium on motivating readers at Texas Womans
University in Denton, TX on Monday, July 28, 1997.  Librarians, teachers,
and other participants will be offered strategies for reading motivation
that encourage children to read without creating incentive programs that
may ultimately devalue the process of reading.  Additional speakers will
include national and locally known librarians, publishers, authors, and
professors who will conduct break-out sessions on ways to encourage
reading and motivate readers.

The fee for the full-day symposium is $30 (box lunches available at
additional cost).  For information or to register contact: Betty Carter,
TWU SLIS, SH411, Box 425438, TWU Station, Denton, TX 76204 (email:
f_carter@twu.edu) or telephone 817-898-2616.
