The Great Richmond Trivia Bee

The Great Richmond Trivia Bee, #RVATriviaBee, is Richmond’s own live game show. It’s a fast-paced, team-based competition for people who love words, vocabulary, pop culture, history, literature and showing off how smart they are. Teams of three are invited to compete for bragging rights, best team name, and more!


After thoughtful deliberation, READ has decided to postpone their annual fundraiser, The Trivia Bee, until September 29th, 2021. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and care for our sponsors, friends, and the greater community. We want everyone to be able to gather safely and enjoyably. Keep an eye out for a new Trivia Bee date in the upcoming months. We look forward to when we can all gather again!

Read Between the Wines

September 2021

During the week of September 20th  The READ Center is joined folks across the country to celebrate National Adult Education and Family Literacy week. The annual campaign raised awareness about the need for and value of adult education and family literacy in the U.S.

In the past, READ Between the Wines has been held during  #AEFLweek. The event brought READ students, volunteers, and supporters together to celebrate our students’ achievements and raise awareness around adult literacy needs in our community.

Current events will kept us apart this year, but we still wanted to provide an opportunity to connect with READ staff and students and hear their stories.
