Weekends in Richmond: Celebrating literacy

on April 30, 2012

On Sunday, hundreds of children and adults filled Richmond’s Civic Center Plaza to celebrate the importance of literacy at the third annual Richmond Tales Family Literacy Festival. In addition to picking out free books, kids got their faces painted, played games and watched performances by the East Bay Center for the Performing Arts. Summer Brenner, the author of Richmond Tales: Lost Secrets of the Iron Triangle, signed copies of her book and promoted reading for fun. Enjoy these photos from the festivities.
