World Read Aloud Day


LitWorld founded World Read Aloud Day in 2010 to celebrate the power of reading aloud to create community and amplify new stories and advocate for literacy as a foundational human right. Since then, World Read Aloud Day has evolved into a global movement of millions of readers, writers, and listeners from communities all across the world coming together to honor the joy and power of reading and sharing stories and continue expanding the definition and scope of global literacy.

Every year, World Read Aloud Day has been one of the top trending hashtags on Twitter, celebrated by millions of people in over 170 countries. World Read Aloud Day brings us together to celebrate the extraordinary impact of sharing stories.

Join millions around the globe as we celebrate the power of reading aloud with the thirteenth annual World Read Aloud Day on Wednesday, February 2, 2022. Please visit the following link for further information, updates, and registration:
