Teachers, City Officials, & School Board Members to take part in Annual Reading Initiative

The Bossier Association of Educators and Caddo Association of Educators will celebrate Read Across Louisiana tomorrow at Mall St. Vincent in Shreveport. The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. near Dillard’s.

Kids ages two through 12 will join BAE, CAE, and the Louisiana Association of Educators members as they read alongside special celebrity guests, including Shreveport Mayor Ollie Tyler, city council representatives, school board members from Bossier and Caddo parishes.  Volunteers will host arts and crafts activities and raffle off prizes throughout the day. We’ll even have a special visit by the Cat in the Hat!

The event is free and open to the public.

Read Across Louisiana is the state affiliate project of the National Education Association’s Read Across America – an annual reading motivation program that calls for every child, in every community to celebrate reading.
