A free, interactive community event designed to inspire and enhance the love of reading for all ages will be held Saturday at Centennial Hall on the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs campus.

The multi-cultural literacy festival, called "Minds, Spines and Rhymes: Reading for the 21st Century," is open to students in grades 1-8, along with parents and educators.

The Black Educator's Network and the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs' College of Education will present the festival, which starts with registration at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 11:30 a.m.

The program will consist of interactive reading and writing activities, slam poetry, book talks, music technology integration, literacy strategies and a youth job training workshop. Although it is free, registration is requested. Email BlackEducatorsNetwork@gmail.com or call Theresa Newsom, 282-0194.
