Read-a-thon features local celebrities and politicians

Posted: Updated:

Local politicians, celebrities, and CBS46 personalities will volunteer Friday at a read-a-thon for elementary students.

"An April's Fools Day of Reading" will take place at Whitefoord Elementary in southeast Atlanta from 9-11:30 a.m. Teachers, staff, students, and guest readers will read funny stories and tongue-twisters all while sporting tacky attire.

The event is hosted by Page Turners Make Great Learners, a non-profit dedicated to promoting literacy among young children.

CBS46's Annalee Penny will appear along with Ozzie Areu, President of Tyler Perry Studios, and Matt Westmoreland, an Atlanta Public Schools board member.
