Early Reading Academics


Coming Soon

ERA runs the Early reading Academics group. It is our small reading group that allows for participants to read select text that relate to our upcoming Spring Conference.


That's right! We have our Spring Conference of 2023 in the works. This years topic is Decolonisation. 

As of now, our reading group can only accommodate 25 people per session. We are hoping to expand this in the future, as well as run more than one reading group at a time. So please stay tuned! 

Want to be one of the first people to know, sign up for our monthly newsletter.

Below is our Reading Schedule for this year.
