2017 Marathon Read

During this annual event, volunteers take turns reading over a 24-hour period. This year's event, First Books, focuses on authors' first books that they published or their first book in a series, by authors from all around the world. Each title will be available in English and the original language in which it was published.

Anyone may volunteer for two to five minutes of reading. Groups --  classes, teams, social organizations -- are encouraged to participate by  volunteering for larger blocks of time. Remember, it gets really fun in the wee hours of the morning.

There will be pizza, t-shirts, and other surprises.
