The American Reading Forum is a nonprofit, professional organization composed of individuals who share an interest in the improvement of reading. While the American Reading Forum is an organization that facilitates the dissemination of ideas and research, it places highest priority on providing its members opportunities for critical discussion of ideas, issues, research and emerging research interests and paradigms.
The 2019 ARF Conference will be held in beautiful Sanibel, Fl. Join us for three days of critical dialogue centered around literacy, fellowship, networking and beautiful sunsets.
