ATTEND AN LPB LIVE TAPING!

Louisiana Public Broadcasting is taking Louisiana Public Square on the road


ATTEND AN LPB LIVE TAPING!
Louisiana Public Broadcasting is taking Louisiana Public Square on the road and we want you to be a part of it! Join us on Tuesday, August 14 at Baton Rouge Community College’s Magnolia Performing Arts Pavilion. Refreshments will be served at 5:30PM and taping will begin at 7PM.

The ability to read sets the foundation of who we are and what we can be. Through reading we expand our world, learn new things and increase our base of knowledge. How can we make inroads to improve literacy in Louisiana and champion a joy of reading from pre-school into adulthood? Louisiana Public Square: The Power of Reading looks for answers and explores the value of lifelong reading through the lens of the PBS series The Great American Read.

Featured panelists:
• Rebecca Hamilton, MLIS; Louisiana State Librarian
• Danny Heitman; Journalist and Louisiana author
• Miranda Restovic; Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities (LEH)
• Gary Robertson; Adult Literacy Advocates
• Linda-Marie Barrett; Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance (SIBA)

LPB CEO Beth Courtney and Robyn Merrick, Southern University Vice-President of External Affairs will host.

From 5:30 to 6:30PM, LPB will be recording “favorite novel” testimonials and vendors will be selling titles from The Great American Read Top 100 list.

Please RSVP: www.lpb.org/powerofreading

This episode of Louisiana Public Square is underwritten by Community Coffee’s Cash for Schools Program, LSU Press and the Southern Independent Book Sellers’ Authors Round the South.
