Lynchburg and Danville Take Part in Read Across America

Local celebrities in Lynchburg and Danville came together Saturday to read to children at both the River Ridge and Piedmont Malls. The event was part of Read Across America day, also known as Dr. Suess Day.

It's an effort to promote reading for young children and adults. The event in Lynchburg gave children the opportunity to hear books read aloud by folks like Mayor Mike Gillette, Council Member Joan Foster, and Liberty Football Coach Turner Gill. Our very own Len Stevens also read some stories. The Sylvan Learning Center put the events together.
