Santo Domingo, Jun 9 2015

With the objective of promoting the practice of reading in children, adolescents and young people, and to contribute to their cultural enrichment, in addition to paying tribute to Juan Bosch, who was and is a great writer, the Children and Youth Library of the Dominican Republic (BIJRD) will host during the month of June the 5th Reading Olympics.

At these Reading Olympics participants will analyze and discuss the works of the former President of the Republic and of other authors, both Dominican and Latin American, which are to read before the instructors in the various halls of the library.

The winners will be those who demonstrate having a better understanding of the texts, as well as better spelling and composition. Throughout the month of June, the participants will read texts selected by the BIJRD and they must fill out a form containing a summary of the reading as well as all the details of the book. Then, they will be asked questions to confirm their understanding of the texts and to assess their critical reading.

The Reading Olympics, dedicated to Professor Juan Bosch, are held every year throughout the month of June, coinciding with the birthday of the Dominican writer and politician.
