World Read Aloud Day is next Wednesday: March 7th
From the press release:
World Read Aloud Day is about taking action to show the world that the right to read and write belongs to all people. World Read Aloud Day motivates children, teens, and adults worldwide to celebrate the power of words, especially those words that are shared from one person to another, and creates a community of readers advocating for every child’s right to a safe education and access to books and technology. 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 words to change the world. Register here.
LitWorld estimates that at least 793 million people worldwide remain illiterate and asks: What would the world be like if everyone could read?
