NOVEMBER 1st, National Family Literacy Day


In 1994, Congress designated November first each year as a day to celebrate family literacy. Across the US, families engage in literary activities by reading aloud together, parents and grandparents writing their life stories and having children read them aloud, reading a book over the coming week (with copies for each member of the family) then getting together on Saturday night to discuss it, and recommending books to each other. The Day brings the family together to celebrate the joys of reading.

The benefits of gathering together to read and write are innumerable. Let today be less about laptops and mobile devices and more about books.
