World Read Aloud Day: March 5th, 2014
Worldwide at least 793 million people remain illiterate. Two-thirds of them are women. LitWorld is changing that.
Every year on the first Wednesday of March, World Read Aloud Day calls global attention to the importance of reading aloud and sharing stories.
WRAD motivates children, teens, and adults worldwide to celebrate the power of words and creates a community of readers taking action to show the world that the right to literacy belongs to all people.
By raising our voices together on this day we show the world’s children that we support their future: that they have the right to read, to write, and to share their stories.
Read Aloud. Change the World.
