Group Promotes Reading for Juneteenth Celebration

A local group that is trying to promote reading will be set up at this weekend’s Juneteenth celebration in Springfield.


iMagicNation will feature its Magic House reading tent and give away free books at the event Saturday at Comer Cox Park.


Organizers say a celebration of reading is appropriate for the Juneteenth event… which marks the emancipation of African-Americans.


They note that it was illegal for slaves to read… so it’s something modern youngsters shouldn’t take for granted.
