The 30th annual National African American Read-In is the nation's first and oldest event dedicated to diversity in literature. It was established by the Black Caucus of the National Council of Teachers of English to make literacy a significant part of Black History Month.

On February 3 at 6 p.m. the Fernandina Beach Library, 25 North 4th Street, is hosting the African American Read-In with Neil Frink and Chuck Comeau. The public is invited to attend and may participate by bringing a 1-2 minute reading from any material written by an African American. For more information call the Library at (904) 530-6500.
