National Readathon Day
Saturday, January 24, 2015
Hello, Get Caught Reading supporters! Help us continue to promote reading culture in America.
The AAP is proud to support the first-ever National Readathon Day (link), on January 24, 2015 from Noon-4 PM (in respective time zones).
Join us for this special afternoon of reading by signing up to participate as an individual reader or team here: http://www.firstgiving.com/10658. All of the funds raised from the Readathon will benefit the National Book Foundation's educational programs (http://www.nationalbook.org/).
Already more than 200 supporters, including bookstores, libraries and schools, have joined the cause, and many are planning to host "reading parties" during the Readathon hours of Noon- 4 PM.
Everyone is encouraged to share their plans and help spread the word. HERE is a channel of videos with what a few authors are saying about the Readathon, their passion for books, and the power of reading.
More videos for sharing, along with downloadable posters and social media assets, can be found HERE.
All of us at the AAP will be making #TimeToRead on National Readathon Day. What will you be reading?
National Readathon Day is the kick-off event of a larger social media campaign encouraging America to make #TimetoRead.
