56th Annual Michigan Reading Association Conference
Public · By Mom’s Choice Awards
March 9, 2012 at 12:00am until March 11, 2012 at 6:00pm

Comprising of over 3 thousand members, the Michigan Reading Association is one of the largest and most stable of its kind in the Midwest. With a return to Grand Rapids, where the annual conference regularly receives over 2,700 in attendance, MRA is a great venue for marketing your k-12 materials. As a population concerned with literacy, and often times comprised of teachers with ever tightening budgets, the opportunity to see books before purchasing them is a huge draw for MRA attendees, making the Combined Book Exhibit a popular destination on the show floor.
