Isme Stubbs Reads Out Loud for National Year of Reading

Wednesday 14th November / presented by Ben Ainslie

Reading is an important life skill, but sadly, 46 per cent of us have literacy problems.

This can lead to a number of challenges for people trying to complete day-to-day tasks.

In the National Year of Reading 2012 the State Library of WA is doing its bit to encourage a love of words.

It’s called Read Out Loud, and it’s exactly that with a number of people reading aloud from a novel or story of their choice.

One of the readers, Isme Stubbs, spoke with Ben Ainslie earlier this morning.

At 13 years of age Isme began her own blog reviewing and recommending books.

Today, she works for Penguin and is an Ambassador for the National Year of Reading…she read for us today.
