Boston Elementary School is expecting a star-studded list of guest readers to help promote literacy and a love of books at Friday morning's Read Across America event.
Former Boston administrators Les Conley, Susan Newman, Mary Raley, Claire Davis, and Val Bahum will return to the school as guest readers and share some of their favorite books with students.
Superintendent Dr. Frank Petruzielo will make a special appearance at 9:30 a.m. to read to Boston fourth graders. .
Read Across America Day is celebrated every year on March 2, the birthday of Theodor Geisel, better known to the world as Dr. Seuss. As March 2 falls on a Saturday this year, schools across America will be celebrating the reading extravaganza on Friday, March 1.
