World of Reading

06 Oct World of Reading

The 2018 World of Reading Festival was Saturday, April 21, 2018 at Barnett Family Park.

The annual World of Reading Festival was held at Barnett Family Park on Saturday, April 21. The free community event focused on family literacy, wellness and interactive learning. Polk County families enjoyed free face painting, live music, games, crafts, snacks and up to 3 free books per child.

A.H. Taylor, author of “The Color Machine” and Renee Adams, author of 14 “Two Facts and Fib” books, were there to sign their books. Both authors took time to provide book readings throughout the day.

World of Reading is a beloved event by our community and we are proud to be able to host it annually. A special thank you to Emily Paladino, World of Reading Chair, and the entire committee for yet another successful community event.

Save the date for the 2019 event on Saturday, April 13, 2019. Contact the World of Reading Committee if you have any questions.


This program is funded in part by a grant from the Florida’s Natural Growers Foundation, Inc. of Lake Wales, Florida.

Thank you to our sponsors Southern Homes and Publix Charities
