MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) - Tuesday on Second Cup we spoke about a Home of Reads Initiative with FAMU's Dr. Makisha Cheeks.

Cheeks, a member of the FAMU Department of English and Modern Languages, and other local educators are pushing for a more literate community one home at a time.

The free community event to promote literacy involves parents and children from kindergarten through the eighth grade.

Participants will be able to browse 500 books exploring diverse genres and subjects.

The Home of Reads Initiative will visit the Thomas County Library on June 2, 2018, and the Madison County Library on June 9, 2018, to reach other areas.
