Hey Madame Freak Fans!
I recently had the honor of participating in the wonderful and charitable event entitled Speed Read! It is a fund raiser where local celebrities and personalities donate their speedy reading abilities and compete to be the fastest reader in order to raise money to buy books for children in need. This year, the chosen book was Dr. Seuss' "The Cat In The Hat." It is a simple book, yet quite tongue twisting when read at a quicker pace!! My partner Howard Eskin and I were knocked out during the first round, but we had such an amazing time and for an incredible cause. The night was a true success! I have already been tapped to be a part of the event next year (can't wait to get a second shot at winning!). But really, it is the kids who win and I am honored to be a part of helping our future generation's literacy and learning development. Thank you First Book Philadelphia for the inspiring work that you are doing!!
