Get ready Kansas City - to read!! The Metro-Area Reader's Round Table (MARRT) has come together to repeat the success of the community-wide reading idea that began in Seattle several years ago. "United We Read" is both the program title and dream, with the goal of having as many people as possible throughout the Kansas City Metropolitan Community read the same book.
"United We Read" will promote community, school, and family partnerships to improve educational, specifically reading, opportunities for an intergenerational group of learners. Displays and "tool kits" will be made available for those participating in "United We Read."
The project will kick off in August 2002 for summer reading and in September 2002 for the schools and October for book clubs. The event will end with an author visit in November of 2002.
