    What is World Read Aloud Day?

    For 12 years, World Read Aloud Day (WRAD), hosted by LitWorld, has called attention to the importance of sharing stories by challenging participants to grab a book, find an audience, and read aloud or find an audience and tell a story.

    The global effort is now celebrated in over 173 countries and counting. World Read Aloud Day is a worldwide movement of millions of readers, writers, and listeners from communities all across the world coming together to honor the joy and power of reading and sharing stories to continue the expansion of the definition and scope of global literacy.
