We think everyone in the world should get to read and write. Every year, on World Read Aloud Day (WRAD), people all around the globe read aloud together and share stories to advocate for literacy as a human right that belongs to all people.” ~ WRAD website

These graphics from WRAD explain why this is important:

How can authors participate?

In addition to that listed for Family Literacy Day...

  • create a short video of you reading an excerpt from your book to a group of children (think classroom, library, church or other organized group) and maybe answering questions or doing a literacy-based activity is a great visual that can be shared across the globe via social media. Be sure to get applicable permissions though.
