What's The Big Read?
"774 million adults can not read this, and 75 million children who are not in school will be denied the chance to learn to read and write.
After reading a story in the Big Read we are asking you to write your name for the millions that cannot.
We are collecting the names to deliver to governments during the week of the 20th to 26th of April 2009 to demand that they take action to make sure that everyone has an education."

"We are the men and women reading books, searching
In the pages of history for the lost world, the key
To the mystery of living peace, imperishable joy;
We are the factory hands the field hands mill hands everywhere
Moulding creating building structures, forging ahead....
We are the living dream of dead men everywhere,
The unquenchable truth that class-memories create
To stagger the infamous world with prophecies
Of unlimited happiness - a deathless humanity;
We are the living and the dead men everywhere....
If you want to know what we are -
we are REVOLUTION!"
(Carlos Bulosan, 1940)
