Marathon Read

"Myths, Legends, and Songs from around the World"


During this annual event, volunteers take turns reading over a 12-hour period. This year's event, Myths, Legends, and Songs from around the World will incorporate short stories and songs from a number of languages taught and spoken on (our) campus at Penn State!

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.

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