Faculty, staff and students are invited to record themselves reading one of three books and then upload it to the Read Across America site to be shared throughout Hamden, West Haven, Branford and New Haven.

“Quinnipiac University is proud to participate and sponsor the nation’s largest celebration of reading through the Read Across America initiative, an important part of National Reading Month that takes place every March," said Bethany Zemba, vice president and chief of staff at Quinnipiac. "Through this program, we hope to help bring reading excitement to children of all ages.”

This year's books explore the topics of diversity, equity and inclusion, while celebrating Black and Latinx authors.

Among the book selections:

  • “Sulwe” by Lupita Nyong’o
  • "Where Are You From” by Yamile Saied Méndez
  • “El Día En Que Descubres Quién Eres” by Jaqueline Woodson (in Spanish)

Submissions due by Thursday, February 25
