From a press release:
The legendary athlete and children’s author Kareem Abdul-Jabbar will read and speak with children at Reading Is Fundamental’s oldest program in the nation at a WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE Celebration May 10 at Amidon-Bowen Elementary School in Washington, D.C. Tracy Hutson of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,” will also lead the festivities, which include crafts and WILD THINGS costumed characters. All of the children at the school will be given their very own copy of Maurice Sendak’s iconic and award-winning WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE to keep, thanks to a generous donation from HarperCollins Children’s Books. District of Columbia Public Schools Chancellor Kaya Henderson will also attend the event.
