Snow White, Little Red, Iron Man, Little Dinosaur, Alice... Many cute characters and books were marching on the SLIS campus to give our Literacy Month so much fun! Bring your favorite book, read it in depth to fully understand the features of the character you want to play, and dress yourself up as your favorite book character. Then you can stop fantasizing about being a character in the book, because you are really the leading role in the book this day. The first Book Character Parade was successfully held on November 8. We look forward to developing this event into a campus tradition of SLIS in the future.
