The National Education Association (NEA) sponsors the Read Across America event each year on or near March 2, Dr. Seuss' birthday. In 2017, NEARI will celebrate Read Across America on Saturday, March 4, at Warwick Mall.
The event, which begins at 10:00 a.m. and continues until 4:00 p.m., is free to the public and includes celebrity readers (I recommed that you get there for author Josh Funk's reading, scheduled for 2:30.), crafts (visit me at the School Librarians of Rhode Island table after 1:30!), raffles, a book give-away table, an opportunity to visit and pose with Cat in the Hat, and more!
