The Minnesota Literacy Council sponsors an annual Journeys Reading event in the spring to celebrate the adult literacy community in Minnesota. Adult literacy students are invited to read their original stories and poems, many of which are featured in Journeys: An Anthology of Adult Student Writing.
It is a powerful experience for the readers, their families and friends, volunteers and staff. For photos, visit the literacy council’s Facebook page, and for videos of readings, go to our youtube site.
This tool kit has customizable signs and fliers, a volunteer sign up sheet--tools that will help you to put on your own ABE reading event. ABE programs that decide to hold a student reading can elect to sell Journeys as a fundraiser. To order Journeys for your event, please email Ellie Purdy at email@example.com.
