Wenatchee Wild hockey players will read Maurice Sendak’s “Where the Wild Things Are” to youth among other selections at the Wild About Literacy event in the Brown Library on the Wenatchee Valley College (WVC) campus Monday, Dec. 13, from 6-7 p.m. This opportunity for young students to interact with players in an educational setting is part of a larger event to promote the benefits of literacy.
A short presentation and open discussion about the importance of literacy, adult basic education and literacy programs in the Wenatchee Valley will be presented to adults while students and players participate in the reading event. Literacy is increasingly important for adult workers to obtain greater skill levels that lead to better job opportunities and a better economy for the Wenatchee Valley.
Event speakers include Susan Adams of SkillSource, Inc., Louise Verellen of Wenatchee Valley Literacy Council, Larry Ruddell of WVC, and WVC student Lucina Trujillo. Local youth and their parents, community members, and community leaders are encouraged to attend.
