After a loooong wait, I am so excited to share this video with you all of Christian Slater reading The Coal Thief on Storyline Online! What an honor to be included in this literacy program put together by the SAG-AFTRA Foundation and BookPals.
BookPALS (Performing Artists for Literacy in Schools) is a signature children’s literacy program of the SAG-AFTRA Foundation. BookPALS provides union performers, gifted in the art of storytelling, the opportunity to give back to their local communities. Every week dedicated volunteers read to thousands of children in title 1 public school classrooms across the nation.
And don't forget to take a look at the Activity Guides for Families and Teachers! Pass them on to your kids' classrooms!
And P.S. No, I didn't do the animation in the video, and no, I didn't get to meet Mr. Slater. Everything was taken care of by the talented people from SAG-AFTRA.
