Next week, kids and classrooms from coast to coast will celebrate the joy of reading while highlighting the importance of literacy as we observe Read Across America Day.
Savannah State University’s College of Education and GAE/Educators Rising are taking it to the next level by hosting a live book festival– Reading by the Sea.
Patrice White is an instructor with the College of Education. She sat down with us to talk about the celebration and the need to raise awareness about increasing literacy.
