We’ll learn how words help our brains make sense of the world—and what that means for millions of people here and abroad who live without written language. We’ll hear about vital new literacies for our digital age and discover surprising solutions for illiteracy from designers, scientists, artists, and other thought leaders. And we’ll find out why literacy so often leads to success—personally, economically, and for society as a whole."
