Read for the Record: Join the whole wide world as we read Evelyn del Rey is Moving Away

By October 28, 20202 Comments

Art by Sonia Sanchez, Evelyn Del Rey is Moving Away

It’s here! Read for the Record Day, when millions of readers will read EVELYN DEL REY IS MOVING AWAY and spend a day enjoying activities with little ones. Here is the official virtual schedule from Jumpstart, which has events throughout the day – including readings, arts and crafts and even yoga!

This page will be updated in real-time as each event takes place on social media. If you want to follow along on Facebook, you can have the Jumpstart page open. And check out my Jumpstart landing page for more resources.

But another truly exciting aspect are all the other events going on worldwide. Your best bet is to follow the #readfortherecord hashtag on twitter where you’ll get the exact times and virtual locations of other readings, such as Sonia Manzano, as well as Hugh Jackman, and Alejandra Espinosa from Univisión and many more. I’ll be closing out the evening at the Orange County Public Library in California at 7 pm ET/4 pm PT

I’m a bag of nerves, but thrilled. Happy reading and thank you for joining in the fun with your little ones!

Everyone at my house is ready for Read for the Record

    Oh, Meg–this is so wonderful! I’m sending a copy of Evelyn Del Ray to my great-niece who turns 5 soon for her birthday book this year!
