A reminder to all of us from the proofreading website Grammarly. If you’re reading this blog, then you have been given one of the greatest of gifts, the ability to read. International Literacy Day was September 8th, a fact I just discovered, but the message is important any day of the year.
I’m looking forward to resuming my volunteer work as a literacy tutor this year. After reading Somewhere Between Luck and Trust, the audio narrator of my novel, Karen White, decided she, too, could be a literacy tutor and did the training. Last time we emailed she was happily tutoring away.
If tutoring is out of the question, why not read to patients at a local nursing home or children in a local preschool program? There are so many wonderful ways to give the gift of words. Thanks to Grammarly for this reminder.
