World Read Aloud Day! @litworldsays

Celebrate the Power of Words and Stories and Take Action for Global Literacy with LitWorld

Worldwide at least 793 million people remain illiterate. Imagine a world where everyone can read... 

On March 7, 2012, LitWorld, a global literacy organization based in New York City, will be celebrating World Read Aloud Day. World Read Aloud Day is about taking action to show the world that the right to read and write belongs to all people. World Read Aloud Day motivates children, teens, and adults worldwide to celebrate the power of words, especially those words that are shared from one person to another, and creates a community of readers advocating for every child’s right to a safe education and access to books and technology. By raising our voices together on this day we show the world’s children that we support their future: that they have the right to read, to write, and to share their words to change the world.

In support of World Read Aloud Day, here's a clip of me reading the opening of my new novel, NEVER ENOUGH. I hope you'll support World Read Aloud Day - stop by their website, and read out loud to someone today!


  1. Love the video - what a great idea! We have the cold out here, too :( The Danny DeVito reference made me laugh.

    With little kids, every day should be read aloud day :)

    1. Thanks, Shiela! Yes, my eight year old and I read to each other every day.

  2. Okay, Denise, I'm sold. Just added Never Enough to my Amazon wish list, so I won't forget to order it.

    And I agree with Shiela. "With little kids, every day should be read aloud day." :)

    1. Aw, thanks so much, Linda! I hope you enjoy it :)

  3. Thanks, Denise. Would you read the rest to me, too? Just one chapter a night. My bedtime is around 9:00 pm . Thanks.

    1. So let me get this straight...I now have to read daily to my son, my husband, AND you???
