The Rotary Club of Myrtle Beach recently hosted a Young Authors’ Reading and Awards Luncheon. The event featured students from Freedom Readers who authored and read their original works. Following the readings, the young participants were treated to lunch and bowling.
Myrtle Beach Rotarian and author, Marsha Tennant, chaired the event. “I am amazed at the talent of these young authors and readers. They have enormous potential,” she said.
The mission of Freedom Readers is to improve reading skills in low-income communities by providing one-on-one literacy tutoring, free books for home libraries, and an inspiring high-energy learning environment.
This District 7770 grant event was funded through RI Foundation donations.
