African American Read-In
Month of February
During the month of February, schools, churches, libraries, bookstores, community and professional organizations, and interested citizens are urged to make literacy a significant part of Black History Month by hosting an African American Read-In. Hosting an event can be as simple as bringing together friends to share a book, or as elaborate as arranging public readings and media presentations that feature professional African American writers. See a list of local events and our toolkit with resources for organizers and participants.

National Day on Writing 
October 20, 2017
The National Day on Writing was founded by the National Council of Teachers of English on the premise that writing is critical to literacy but needs greater attention and celebration.

For the past 9 years, we’ve seen hundreds of thousands of people share their responses and engage in activities around the theme of #WhyIWrite. Their collective voices are raising the volume on this issue.
