This volume is a milestone year for the Yearbook, the conference, and the College Reading Association (CRA). At this conference, CRA celebrated its 50th year. The title of this thirty-first yearbook mirrors the theme of the 2008 conference--"Mentoring Literacy Professionals for 50 Years." The title "Mentoring Literacy Professionals: Continuing the Spirit of CRA/ALER after 50 Years" is chosen in an attempt to reflect the research and papers presented at the Golden Anniversary Conference held in Saratoga, Florida.
