Read Along for the Record

This year’s Read for the Record event will be held on Thursday, October 29.  The book is Evelyn Del Rey is Moving Away.  It is about the friendship between two little girls – one African-American and one Hispanic-American – and how that friendship is tested when one of them has to move away.
