Reading with LeVar Burton

For those of you who grew up watching PBS’ Reading Rainbow (new episodes ran from 1983-2006 and re-runs were broadcast until 2009), you will be happy to hear that its beloved host, LeVar Burton, is launching a live read-aloud for teens at 6 pm tonight, Wednesday, April 8th, on Twitter. He’ll continue reading every Wednesday night until the current health crisis stabilizes. He is also reading to children on Mondays at 12pm and even to adults on Fridays at 9pm. Visit Burton’s website for more information and tune in to Twitter tonight to hear Burton’s ever-reassuring and expressive voice reading from Jason Reynolds’ Look Both Ways.
