This is an online event.
Check out Pernille Ripp's website dedicated to the Global Read Aloud 2016! This is a great way to connect with people around the world, all while reading the same book. They even have a way to connect the read aloud to writing by students responding to what they've read. Sometimes, the author will even post videos each week about the chapters that were read!
