Bookmarks Summer Reading Program, now in its second year, helps students, parents, and teachers prepare for the annual Bookmarks Festival of Books and Authors, which, this year, is being held September 8 – 10. K-12 students across North Carolina are invited to participate in the Summer Reading Program with written, visual, and video responses to books on Bookmarks Summer Reading list, including authors featured at the Festival and NC standard reading lists. Participants will have the chance to earn books, cash prizes, and more.
There is a free kickoff party this Thursday, May 12 from 5:30-7:30 at the William G. White Family YMCA at 775 West End Blvd., in Winston-Salem. They will have pizza, games, and prizes, as well as a presentation. (RSVP is required by calling 336-747-1471.)
