Story Walk
Story Walk at the Parkland Library.

Last fall, several Broward College’s Reading L.Y.F. Club members came together to write, illustrate, and publish a children’s e-book.

In celebration of National Read Across America Day, Broward College’s Reading Club came together to write, illustrate and publish a children’s e-book. Now the story comes to life through the City of Parkland’s next Story Walk.

“The Unbreakable Bond” is the story of the Rosa Williams family reunion. Although it would normally take place in-person, the family recognizes the importance of social distancing and decides to reunite online. To keep the virtual reunion exciting, the family organizes a talent show to show off the new skills learned at home.

“Reading is an important part of our daily lives, and as a community, we all play a role in helping children foster a love for reading,” said assistant professor and club advisor Eileen Santiago.  

The Story Walk takes place Tuesday, March 2, from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in honor of National Read Across America Day, and each page of the e-book will be printed on a large yard sign.

To read the entire book, children and their families can take a walk around the Parkland Library to see each page. Visit anytime during the time period to participate. Proper physical distancing and face coverings are required. Pre-registration and a Parkland Library card are required. To register here or call 954-757-4207.

The Reading L.Y.F. (Lead Your Future) Club at Broward College’s mission is to promote literacy in the community. This event is one way to bring a story about social distancing in a format that is available for all.
