The 100 Men Reading Day VIII (Celebrating Read Across America and Dr. Seuss’s Birthday) is Friday, March 2 from 7:30 to 11:30 a.m. in the Harrisburg School District (HSD) and Steelton-Highspire Elementary School. The honorary chair of the 100 Men Reading Day VIII is Ron Claiborne of ABC Good Morning America.

The purpose of the 100 Men Reading Day VIII is to encourage men to read to elementary students. Please join us by filling out the form on the following page.
Each reader will spend about 25 minutes with each group of students. Each reader will visit with three different groups of students. During the visit, readers will share a couple of books, talk about what they do for a living, and encourage the students to do well in school. Stories that address character development such as honesty, kindness, sharing and acceptance, as well as, ones that are entertaining will be chosen. Before the readers go to the schools, there will be an orientation and breakfast at 7:30 a.m. at Camp Curtin Elementary School Cafeteria, 2900 N 6th St, Harrisburg, PA for the orientation.
The 100 Men Reading Day VIII is a program of the American Literacy Corporation (ALC) which is a non-profit organization that promotes reading to elementary school students. Since 2001, the ALC has promoted reading to over 110,000 children in all 50 states. Additionally, the ALC gives thousands of books to children annually.
