Read-in: /’reed – in/ (n.) a form of direct action that involves one or more persons nonviolently occupying an area for reading, often to promote social change.
On Friday, October 19, teens from Wake Forest, Wendell, East Regional and Eva Perry libraries gathered at Triangle Town Center for a read-in. Teens read, shared books with their friends as they sipped on donated Starbucks coffee. (Thanks, Starbucks!) Some of the teens had even made tee shirts to promote the event, and wore them to the mall for the read-in!
The read-in was just one of dozens of teen reading events held across Wake County during Teen Read Week. Thanks to all the teens who participated and had fun!
