It is an honor for me to be part of the Team, of INTERNATIONAL READ TO ME DAY, in Australia, representing Greece, promoting literacy schemes around my country with fellow writers and school students.

Thank you, EmmaMactaggart, for this amazing opportunity!

Emma is the Creative Director of Boogie Books, a small press publisher with purpose, and is the Founder of The Child Writes Fund.

International Read to Me! Day aims to:

  1. Change the dynamic and empower children to ask for more support, not just from their birth family but also from their community.  Marking a day when kids can ask to be read to is a key part of this strategy. 
  2. Promote, encourage and inspire reading activities within communities; 
  3. And to showcase organisations who are passionate about improving the literacy standards of the children around them.
  4. To address the disparity between resources and where they are distributed, by supporting a book drive and sending the collected books to locations around the world to those who are looking for books!
