Alabama State University is inviting the community to join its Hornet Nation Read & Rise: A virtual Experience on Feb. 2, 2021, via Zoom.  The event is the kickoff festivity for ASU’s 121st Founders’ Week Observance.

Read & Rise has been designed toA reach all students with consideration of virtual and face-to-face learning environments.

​​Each reader will engage participants with his or her favorite book.  Those participating will be able to select the time they want their child or class to login. All sessions are based on Central Standard Time. The presentation features reading a favorite book, a brief explanation of the book and a discussion about the importance of reading and the influence books have had on the readers’ lives. If time allows, there will be a question and answer session.

Registration deadline is Sunday, January 31, 2021, or until all sessions are full.  Just click here to register. There is a maximum of 300 participants per session. Participants can sign up for multiple sessions. Zoom information and a confirmation email will be sent by February 1.

We are grateful for the opportunity to serve your children, families and students. If you have any questions, please contact Kenn Waters at or 334-229-4270.
