Last weekend I received a phone call from a member of our Literacy Council. Our local council just received a national certification. To celebrate that achievement and the fact they have existed in our community for 25 years, a special community reading event is being planned for the fall.
The gal who called me is a retired English teacher from the high school my girls attend. She taught AP 12 for years and although my girls never sat in her classroom, I knew who she was. We had a lovely chat and she convinced me that I should serve on an ad hoc committee to steer this new reading event.
My first meeting is Thursday. All together now.....Liz is such a sucker. Yes, I am a sucker for reading, for books, for talking about books, for words....for it all.
Lisa...huge shout out to you.....at this point they are focused on just an adult title, but I am going to push for them to do adult, YA and children's titles. Got any suggestions?
