RAAlogoRead Across America Celebration at Brier Creek Commons
Saturday, March 5th from 10am – Noon
The National Education Association is building a nation of readers through its signature program, NEA’s Read Across America. Now in its 18th year, this year-round program focuses on motivating children and teens to read through events, partnerships, and reading resources.
In 1997 the National Education Association (NEA), pushed for a special day to celebrate reading throughout the United States. This idea proved to be a popular one so it was not long before the first Read Across America Day was held on March 2, 1998. This nationwide observance coincides with the birthday of Dr Seuss (Geisel), an American writer best known writing children’s books. Some of his books include Green Eggs and Ham, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and The Cat in the Hat.
This year Brier Creek Commons will join the celebration!  Join us for a morning full of exciting events celebrating reading.  Mark your calendars for Saturday, March 5th from 10am-12pm.  The celebration will take place at the clock tower.  Check our website and Facebook page as the date draws closer for more information!
“You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read with a child.” – Dr Seuss
