National Week 2012

Join the Movement. Read Aloud. Change the World.

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

Tomorrow, March 6, marks the fourth annual World Read Aloud Day. We often take for granted the gift of reading, its pleasures, its pains, its power, tomorrow gives us the opportunity to reflect on the marvels of reading and take action to show the world that literacy is not a privilege but a right that belongs to all people.

Pam Allen of LitWorld (the founding body) encourages librarians to celebrate in your libraries by reading aloud, giving away a book or doing anything you can to “read it forward” on behalf of the 793 million people who cannot yet read.

I plan to read aloud my favourite Austen passage, Elizabeth Bennett’s stinging refusal of Mr. Darcy’s hand. What will you be reading?
