Pinellas Reading Council

The Pinellas Reading Council and Barnes & Noble in Clearwater hosted a reading event today at the store to promote a holiday book program.  The stores in Clearwater and St. Petersburg will be encouraging customers to make a book donation for a child as a gift.  Since the books will be distributed through the Pinellas County School system, school superintendent Dr. Michael Grego and I were at the Clearwater store to kick-off the promotion by reading to students.  Dr. Grego read “Great Joy” to the students, and since it was November 1st, my book was “In November.”  We both reminded the students of the importance and joy of reading and encouraged the parents to do the same.

Here to Listen. Here to Work.
