For kids and families, July means summer vacation, and vacation means fun. Throw in a kid-friendly KPCC program about family reading and what do you get? #KidReads Live!

On Saturday, July 20, KPCC's Deepa Fernandes and two literacy whizzes hosted this special offsite event at the A C Bilbrew Library in Los Angeles.  This kid-focused interactive program highlighted ways to make reading fun, effective, and culturally enriching. A mix of discussion and reading with the audience finished with time for audience members to share their favorite book.
