Dr. Julia B. Lindsey is the author of the new book, Reading Above the Fray,
available everywhere books are sold. 

Julia is an early literacy consultant, former elementary teacher, and dog-lover. She specializes in supporting districts, curriculum publishers, and program developers in giving children access to high-quality, research-based foundational reading experiences. Julia’s work also focuses on ensuring children receive culturally sustaining and empowering literacy instruction from an early age. 

Seeing the need for children to apply phonics in meaningful texts, Julia (along with various partners and supporters, including her doctoral advisor, Dr. Nell K. Duke) offers a new framework for thinking about books for beginning readers — Beyond Decodables (www.beyonddecodables.com).
