MARIETTA - CobbWorks Literacy Council (CLC) is teaming up with Barnes and Noble to hold Imagine a Day Without Reading, an event to raise literacy awareness in Cobb County, on Saturday, December 9, 2017 at Barnes and Noble Town Center Prado located at 50 Barrett Parkway, Marietta, GA 30066 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. There will be fun and interactive activities for both children and adults alike, including stations designed to help individuals understand the daily struggles of someone unable to read and how we sometimes take our own literacy for granted in everyday life.
This is the second year collaborating with Barnes and Noble for this type of event. CLC hopes to promote reading and raise awareness for literacy within Cobb County through children and adults. Attendees can expect fun yet informative stations on relative topics throughout the store as they shop. The children’s area will have activities specifically geared towards their interests. There will also be a story hour with featured author, Angelique Monet, and her book, The Bravest Worrier, to instill an appreciation and enjoyment for reading.
