Friday’s kick-off will see Brock Street closed for an hour-long flash-mob read-in event attended by elementary students, teachers, family, and friends. From June 1–4, a different Canadian author will be featured each day, including Rebecca Bender (Giraffe Meets Bird) on June 2nd.

The organizers encourage literature lovers to share their reading photos online at #ReadIN.
