ILY Newsletter, Jan/Feb, Apr, Jul, Nov 1990
This document consists of the four issues of the "ILY Newsletter" issued during 1990. The January/February issue, "The Book Voyage," reports on the International Literacy Year (ILY) project in which a series of books travels around the world and people who have recently learned to read and write express messages in the books, to share with others around the world. The Canadian Book Voyage was launched in Ottawa on January 25, 1990. "Book Voyage Update" is the focus of the April issue, followed by "National Training Event for Literacy Students Stresses Lobbying, Activism" in the July issue. The final issue (November) highlights "Canada Post Corporation and Literacy." Articles are included on regional and international conferences, proposed Canadian taxes, theater, local activities, training, a community newspaper, illiteracy and poverty facts, a poster contest, resources, a literacy survey, older adults, literacy project funding, dropouts, and illiteracy as a health issue. Each issue is written in both English and French. (LB) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
