Synopsis: A graduate of Wellesley College, Catherine Blakemore holds M.A.s in education from the University of Colorado-Denver and in economics from the University of Michigan. She taught in a charter school in Denver and worked as an analyst for the U.S. Congress. In "Basic Level Literacy Programs for English-Speaking and Non-English-Speaking Adults", Catherine has written a study specifically designed to provide centers with a variety of options. It describes many features of the adult basic level literacy programs held by forty-two literacy centers in thirty-four states and the District of Columbia.

Critique: Featuring a convenient format, extensive contact information, and an index, "Basic Level Literacy Programs for English-Speaking and Non-English-Speaking Adults" is as 'user friendly' in organization and presentation as it is instructive, practical and pragmatic in its commentaries and concepts. Impressively informed and informative, "Basic Level Literacy Programs for English-Speaking and Non-English-Speaking Adults" is highly recommended for personal, professional, community, academic, and NGO library English Literacy reference collections and supplemental studies reading lists.
