Franklin-Fulton Reads From Here to There

Plan now to join other Franklin and Fulton County residents in a two-month celebration of reading about historic highways and byways.  This regional community reading program is an expansion of "Chambersburg Reads".  Activities are being scheduled from September 8 (International Literacy Day) through mid-Novemeber.  They include book discussions and other literature-based programs for ages 3 to 100, music and readers' theatre, and visual arts' exhibits and programs.  Read and talk about traveling the roads, trails, rails, and paths of Pennsylvania and the United States with us.  Program presenters already include, local author Harriett Diller (Granddaddy's Highway), songwriter/singer/musician John Brink, the Conococheague Players, Lincoln Highway Association.  Franklin County LEARN and Healthy Communities partners, schools, and libraries are developing activities for families with children of all ages.  Additional featured books include Richard Paul Evans' series "The Walk" (now 3 titles long), nonfiction books about Lincoln Highway, the Appalachian Trail, and Forbes Road, Rules of the Road by Joan Bauer for teens, Country Crossing by Jim Ayelsworth and many other great titles for children.
