12 hours, 31 chapters. 50 readers.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of a To Kill a Mockingbird, raise some cash for Literacy Volunteers of the Greater Capital Region, do something fun and to kill a Saturday, a group of volunteers is holding a marathon reading of Harper Lee's classic novel at The Book House in Stuyvesant Plaza.
Lots of members of the AOA crowd will be reading, including Kim D, Kaitlin Resler, Jim Cronen, Chuck Miller,Erik Dollman, Kevin Marshall, The Hellions of Troy, Lydia Kulbida and Benita Zahn and AOA Mary.
The event starts at 9AM on November 6th and goes until 9PM -- or whenever they finish. They're still looking for a few good readers and a lot of people to hang out and listen.
Admission is free but donations to Literacy Volunteers are being accepted.
Yep, AOA is a media sponsor for this event
