PACE, in conjunction with the Josey Ranch Lake Branch of the Carrollton Public Library presented the African American Read-In at 3PM on February 21, 2016.
Robin Perry had the audience in an uproar to her hilariously funny presentation encouraging children to read. Humorist Chuck Siler treated us to his witicisms. Dr. Grace Burke read to us about her three aunts. There were other readings and quizes which all of the younger members of the audience seemed to greatly enjoy before being given new and slightly used books of their own to take away from the event.
Light refreshments were served after the Read-In.
