Read-a-Thon - What a success!

Read-a-thon is over!  We finished A Farewell to Arms in 10.5 hours - from 9 am until 7:30 pm! 

In case you missed it you can see the photos of all readers on the American Corner Trieste Facebook Page and watch the recorded readings of John Phillips, US Ambassador to Italy, Jeff Galvin,  Elizabeth McKay, Nicholas Giacobbe. 
Here are our statistics:
- 10 hours and 30 minutes,
- 355 pages
- 117 volunteer readers from age 14 to 88 anni,
- 3 languages (English, Italian, Spanish). 

Locally our VIP Readers included Mayor Roberto Cosolini and Professor Leonardo Buonomo.

Thanks to all of our Readers (of all ages/languages ) for making our event for the European Day of Languages such a success! 

Congratulations to Noemi Roma, 3C Liceo Artistico Nordio, on winning the Kindle  Paperwhite!
