Read Across America

Union County Freeholders Alexander Mirabella, Vernell Wright, Sergio Granados, Christopher Hudak and Bette Jane Kowalski read to children at the Barnes & Noble bookstore in Springfield on March 2 during the Union County Education Association’s annual Read Across America event. Read Across America is a reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading in honor of the birthday of children’s author Dr. Seuss.
