The Global Book Hour

Celebrating 10 Years!

While in-person sessions have been on hold, GBH has not stopped thinking about its mission to promote literacy and global understanding through community-based activities! To continue providing area families with the books they love, the GBH hosted an outdoor Curbside Pickup event at Buffalo State and is posting new Global Book Hour Virtual Read Alouds on YouTube.

GBH initiatives can be found:

  • in Buffalo, NY at Wegmans on Amherst Street with Patty George who co-directs GBH
  • in Montgomery County with Kim Truesdell who co-founded GBH
  • in Santiago Chile at Escuela República de México with Universidad Mayor who partners with the IPDS
  • in Baton Rouge, LA with Rosalind Hudson who read about the project through the Reading Teacher article
