World Read Aloud Day is a global holiday celebrated annually in over 173 countries, and is all about bringing people together through the shared connection of reading aloud.
LitWorld founded World Read Aloud Day in 2010 to celebrate the power of reading aloud to create community and amplify new stories, and to advocate for literacy as a foundational human right. Join Oprah Winfrey, Rami Malek, Angela Bassett and authors from around the world who will be reading from a special virtual read aloud collection.
