4th Annual Read-a-thon
April 8 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Get lost in a good book with the Worlds of Words Center’s Reading Ambassadors as they host their 4th-annual Read-a-thon! The middle and high school reading ambassadors encourage booklovers of all ages to join them for focused reading paired with fun prompts. There is no physical location for the Read-a-thon, so participants can join on Instagram from anywhere they would like to read!
The WOW Reading Ambassadors will include Distress Signal by Mary E. Lambert on their reading lists. Read-a-thon participants can read this book or any books they are dying to read — tackle Mt. TBR (to be read) or ignore it all together! The titles on everyone’s reading list will be shared on Instagram as a way to build reading lists!
“Read-a-thons are so fun because we get reading prompts every hour where we answer questions about the book we’re reading as a group,” says Echo Sierra, a Teen Reading Ambassador. “Reading is fun on its own, but having little stuff thrown in helps visualize the story a bit more!”
Mark your calendar for 1 p.m. on Sunday, May 7 when the ambassadors will welcome Mary E. Lambert to the WOW Center!
Teen and Middle School Reading Ambassador author meetings occur every other month throughout the academic year. This free program for area youth encourages them to promote reading in their own contexts. Additional information on the Teen Reading Ambassadors is available on our website under the About tab.
