The Great Richmond Trivia Bee returns on April 28th, 2021!

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! READ staff is working hard to make this year’s Bee a fun, safe, socially distanced event for all. This year, it’s going to be held at The Diamond baseball stadium!

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.
