An estimated 225,000 adults in Kansas City are denied some of the simplest and most important moments in life because they cannot read.

To celebrate the joy of literacy the Library hosts the fourth annual Power of Reading: A Celebration of the Written Word. KCPT’s Nick Haines emcees. Adult students from Literacy Kansas City share their stories. And local writers discuss the power of reading in their lives.

Co-sponsored by The Writers Place and Literacy Kansas City.
