Just in case you weren’t here for the Read to the People kickoff, here’s a small sample of what you’ve missed!
After Senator Costa’s opening remarks, the reading was on. And on, and on, and on! So far today we’ve heard snippets of Lord of the Flies, The Skin I’m In, The Vagina Monologues, and other titles both classic and contemporary. Between bouts of rain, the sun is shining fiercely, and the readers and volunteers remain undaunted.
