An Evening with David Brooks
Wednesday, October 23, 2013 • 7:30 p.m. at the Weinberg Center, Frederick, MD
Journalist, commentator and author, David Brooks will give a special presentation to benefit the Literacy Council of Frederick County on its 50th anniversary. That’s right, 50 years. The Literacy Council was founded in 1963, in a basement on E. Second Street.
Over these many years, the Literacy Council has trained about 3,000 tutors and has helped 8,000 people, both with reading and spelling, and with English proficiency. It’s no secret that illiteracy contributes to poverty, unemployment, poor health and family conditions and other problems that follow. The work that the Literacy Council has been doing over the years has been integral in making Frederick County a better place.
Congratulations to the Frederick County Literacy Council and all the many volunteers on 50 years of service!
David Brooks is an American political and cultural commentator who writes for The New York Times.
