Dawn of the Unread

BY JAMES WALKER
@ VOL 2 ON JUN 20, 2014

A huge fan of reading, James Walker wants to address some issues with modern reading: engaging kids in reading and disengaging them from their computers; making libraries a focal point of communities; and reigniting appreciation for physical reading over digital reading. For James, the answer to these problems was zombies. After many collaborations, Dawn of the Unread- an interactive graphic novel- was created. Reading in the modern age is no longer a passive act, and James has come up with creative and fun ways to engage all ages of the community in sharing a love for reading.

Story Time From Space

BY PATRICIA TRIBE
@ VOL 15 ON MAR 07, 2019

Patricia Tribe's love of space exploration and education has taken her around the world, but she is proud to call Penticton and area home. As Director of Education for NASA’s Space Centre Houston for 13 years, her passion for instilling the love of science and reading in children was fueled. 

Patricia believes in what you cannot imagine, you cannot do. As a result of Patricia’s research and imagination colliding we can now not only imagine, but also watch astronauts on the International Space Station video recording themselves reading stories to and conducting science experiments for the children of Earth, as the world rotates below. That’s Story Time and Science Time from Space!
