During this annual event, volunteers take turns reading over a 24-hour period. This year’s event, First Books, focuses on Author’s first books that they published or their first book in a series, by authors from all around the world. The titles will be available in English and other languages.
Anyone may volunteer for two to five minutes of reading. Groups — classes, teams, social organizations — are encouraged to participate by volunteering for larger blocks of time. Remember, it gets really fun in the wee hours of the morning.
There will be pizza, t-shirts, and other surprises.
