Author Miranda Paul will be visiting schools across the country via SKYPE on the morning of February 24, 2016 as part of World Read Aloud Day, presented by LitWorld.org. She will also be doing in-person school and library visits as part of the Silicon Valley Reads festival.
World Read Aloud Day motivates children, teens, and adults worldwide to celebrate the power of words and creates a community of readers taking action to show the world that the right to literacy belongs to all people. By raising our voices together on this day we show the world’s children that we support their futures: that they have the right to read, to write, and to share their stories.
Although Miranda is already booked for the day, there are several award-winning authors still available to SKYPE with your students! Here’s the link to sign up to have an author virtually visit your classroom: http://www.litworld.org/blog/2016/1/6/get-connected-for-world-read-aloud-day
