Fall in Love with Reading Fest at TCU

FORT WORTH -- Families are invited to gather Saturday morning for an event aimed at encouraging children to read.

The free Fall in Love with Reading Festival is from 9 to 11 a.m. at TCU's indoor practice sports facility, 2920 Stadium Drive.

Youngsters ages 4 to 11 will get free books and free eye exams and will hear stories (in English or Spanish) read by the TCU "Famous Reading Frogs": students, athletes and staffers who volunteer to read aloud to students.

The event is sponsored by the Score a Goal in the Classroom school incentive program
