All-School Read-In … Shhh!

It was unusually quiet at Emerson on Friday morning, February 18, as students and staff joined over a million peers across the country for the 22nd National African American Read-In. Sponsored by the National Council of Teachers of English, the event encourages reading books authored by Black writers.

Thanks to Linda Lakshminarayanan for coordinating the read-in and for rounding up Emerson library resources to make it a great success.  A morning of quiet reading can be a roaring sign of approval!
