Durham Public Schools will debut its summer reading program #WeAreReaders on Wednesday, July 19, at 4 p.m. with a book talk on Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir, led by DPS 6-12 Science Specialist Dr. Emma Refvem. A live book reading of the book Red will follow.

The talks and readings will take place on Durham Public Schools’ Facebook page as a Facebook live event.

“We know that access to books in homes is a contributing factor to students’ reading success and reading enjoyment. Students who read over the summer are more likely to have a smooth re-entry to the school year,” said Heidi Perez, 6-12 English Language Arts Specialist for DPS.

#WeAreReaders is a summer reading program for ALL students in Durham Public Schools.

  • Each prek-12th grade student enrolled in a DPS school received a free, brand new book before school was dismissed for the summer.

  • Weekly activities and programming will be offered.

  • The program will include arts integration, student contests, and special guest appearances.
