Tomorrow is the fifth annual celebration of World Read Aloud Day. Our global movement is making headlines. Our founder, Pam Allyn, is featured on the front page of the Huffinton Post today with her piece, "Read Aloud. Change the World." Read the full story here.
In addition, Pam will be interviewed by NBC News New York at 7pm EST this evening. Check your local listings and tune in.
Finally, we are overjoyed to announce details of our New York City World Read Aloud Day event. We are joined this year by an extraordinary group of partners and individuals. It wouldn't be World Read Aloud Day without Scholastic, Clifford the Big Red Dog and Gray Line New York. Our evening event at the Jefferson Market branch of the New York Public Library will feature read alouds from author Jacqueline Woodson and NYC Police Commissioner William Bratton. All of this comes on the heels of a morning event (closed to the public) at the Scholastic store where R.L. Stine will read aloud to a lucky group of students & LitClub members! We thank Gray Line New York for generously providing a double decker bus to transport our LitClub families to our event. Read the full press release here.
