The story of the Global Read Aloud is a very simple one indeed. What started as a summer night’s conversation and a “What if…” moment spoken aloud, has turned into a global event that somehow grows, changes, adapts, yet perseveres year after year. As new people join our family, as new incredible books are selected, as new technology is incorporated, the mission does not change; one book to connect the world. One book to read aloud. When I look back at the rise of the GRA, I don’t quite know how it happened, only that I am so grateful that it has.
