Celebrating 20 Years of Diverse Readers
Join us on Saturday, March 4 from 10 am - 4pm at Warwick Mall for the 20th Annual Read-a-thon to celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday! We have celebrity readers all day for a read-a-thon, a book giveaway, raffle prizes, a make-your-own hat craft, an opportunity to visit and pose with Cat in the Hat, and so much more!
Read Across America focuses the country's attention on how important it is to encourage children to read. Since NEA launched the event in 1997, more than a million Americans have participated each year in events across the country celebrating Dr. Seuss and his unique style of writing.
