There’s a lovely fundraiser in a couple of weeks in Richmond, VA by The Children’s Book Bank to encourage reading — and reading aloud (it used to be called “Read Aloud Virginia”). The theme this year is autism and how it affects teachers, families, and everyone. Lots of great seminars, and I hope to see you there! And if you can’t come, please consider reading aloud to a child during “Read to a Child Week,” October 16 – 23. Happy reading!
