Happy (almost) Read Across America Day!
<Yes. It is actually a thing. I didn’t believe it either until I saw it in a magazine.>
Okay, so it’s actually tomorrow. But I will be at work tomorrow.
And I knew you all would need to know about it.
In honor of the day, here are some word thoughts I found in an article by Sarah Clarkson:
“. . . The real reason I want people to read is because I want them to realize they are called to live their own great story. The right kind of stories form identity; they help us recognize our capacity to do something good in the world. Read to remember that you are a hero(ine). We are all characters in the great tale that God Himself spoke into existence. (Our story starts with “In the beginning.”) That means we can act in courage or compassion to create, to love, to discover. When I read . . . I know what courage looks like, and I can begin to imagine it for myself. Reading great stories can also help you to imagine what is possible in your own life.”
So three Proseworthy challenges!
1. Make sure to spend time in the best Book of all on Read Across America day—and every day!
2. Take some time to settle in with a good book tomorrow and imagine. Remember you’re a hero!
3. Write your own courageous adventure!
