"We are all connected by our love of books and the children who read them. And our profound belief in the power of stories to shape lives." Sophie Blackall, author
Almost twenty community and school volunteers recently attended Berta Weathersbee Elementary School's second annual Real Men Read event, an initiative to help instill a love a reading in students. Each volunteer was assigned to a classroom where they read a story and shared with the children their own personal reading history. The men also told the students how reading impacts them now and how they utilize reading in their careers. A special thank you goes out to all the LaGrange men who supported this event!
