February 1st is World Read Aloud Day for 2023! It’s an opportunity for people all around the globe to celebrate the joy of reading aloud, and advocate for literacy as a fundamental human right. On this day readers, writers, and listeners from communities all across the world come together to honor the joy and power of reading and sharing stories.
Message us to claim a reader spot between 6 and 8pm, or just plan to come for all or part of the reading. Readers of all ages are invited to read for 3 to 5 minutes (this is a guideline not a hard and fast rule): a passage from some of their favorite literature, a children’s picture book, original poems or short stories, favorite childhood stories, written memories (with special favoritism for Albion history!).
Stirling will provide special Reading Crowns for all readers!
