DICKSON CITY — Celebrity readers, entertaining characters, fun craft activities, and a free book to take home is what the Northeastern Pennsylvania Reading Association (NPRA) will provide for kids during an annual event, set for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 12 in the center court at the Viewmont Mall.
The free event offers children of all ages a chance to enjoy listening to TV and radio celebrity readers and community personalities read their favorite children’s book. Some of the readers include the Nittany Lion, Railriders Quills, Champ, Penguins Tux, a Rock Star, Zookeeper Amos McGee, Junie B. Jones and the Cat in the Hat.
