On March 2, Literacy Now will bring together 400 volunteers to read to 10,000 K-3rd grade students in 25 HISD schools for Houston Reads Day. Due to COVID-19 safety recommendations, the inaugural Houston Reads Day will take place virtually, with volunteers reading remotely. The local event coincides with National Read Across America Day and kicks off Read Aloud Month.
