The Bermuda Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. held their 17th Annual Children’s Reading Festival this weekend, with the event aiming to promote literacy by providing a free book to children.
The event featured local authors, story tellers, literacy games, arts & crafts, face painting and fun castles. Parents talked with experts in the literacy field such as speech and language pathologists, reading specialists and learning support teachers.
Thousands of free books have been handed out to the island’s youth over the years the event has been held. For more information on the Children’s Reading Festival and how to offer financial support or donate books, please contact the Bermuda Alumnae Chapter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
