Annapolis, MD (April 29, 2010) – First Lady Katie O’Malley tomorrow will visit with fourth and fifth graders at Hazelwood Elementary/Middle School and will kick off a summer literacy campaign. During her visit, First Lady O’Malley will read the first chapter of Ruby and the Booker Boys by Derrick Barnes, and illustrated by Vanessa Brantley.
For the second consecutive year, First Lady Katie O’Malley will join other Gubernatorial spouses across the nation and sign on as a “Reading Ambassador,” to help spread the important message about reading books over the summer. In support of their role as Reading Ambassadors, Scholastic has donated 250 books to fourth and fifth grade students in each of the First Spouses’ states for the children to take home and read this summer. Ruby and the Booker Boys was one of many books donated by Scholastic.
