Local children and their families are invited to the 12th annual "March Into Reading!" festival, which celebrates reading by bringing together children's book authors and elementary school students on Aquidneck Island.

Presented by the Aquidneck Collaborative for Education and Salve Regina, this year's festival, “Traveling Through Time with Books,” will feature participation from six local authors and illustrators, including Jarrett Krosoczka, Gregory Mone, Ralph Masiello, Padma Venkatraman, Nancy Cote and Laura Backman. The event will include author and illustrator presentations, book sales and signings, special exhibits, and the very popular discovery rooms designed by education majors.
