Read Across America Day (March 2nd)

Mar 01

Tomorrow, March 2nd, is Read Across America Day. From the National Education Association website,

The National Education Association is building a nation of readers through its signature program, NEA’s Read Across America. Now in its thirteenth year, this year-round program focuses on motivating children and teens to read through events, partnerships, and reading resources.

NEA’s Read Across America Day, NEA’s national reading celebration takes place each year on or near March 2, the birthday of Dr. Seuss. Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers participate by bringing together kids, teens, and books, and you can too!

On March 2, the National Education Association calls for every child to be reading in the company of a caring adult.

Who will you read with tomorrow?

 

And I’d also like to wish Ralph Ellison a happy birthday today, thank you for your literary contribution to the world, Invisible Man. (Not to be mistaken with H.G. Wells’ The Invisible Man.)
