Singer and songwriter Taylor Swift came by Scholastic headquarters Wednesday to share her love of books and reading with over 1.4 million viewers in a live webcast.
If you missed it, I recommend checking it out to hear Taylor’s thoughts on the books she’s loved, where she gets ideas for what to read next, how reading has influenced her writing and her career, and what kinds of stories inspire her.
This webcast is just one way Scholastic is spreading the message of their global literacy campaign, Read Every Day. Lead a Better Life. They encourage you to visit their website and join the campaign – it’s simple to do – and help a child read every day.
