Annual Bright Stars Event

Since 2011, The Reading Center has held events to draw attention and educate our community about the issue of dyslexia, as well as the life-changing services of The Reading Center.

The event is held in the fall and features a special guest who is an accomplished public individual who has dyslexia. 

Prior guests have included Philip Schultz, Pulitzer Prize winning dyslexic author; Jamie Redford, son of Robert Redford and father of a dyslexic child; Gina Belefonte, dyslexic daughter of actor, singer and activist Harry Belefonte, who is also dyslexic; Jack Horner the most famous (and dyslexic) paleontologist of our time, Jerry Pinkney, a Caldecott Medal winning illustrator, dyslexic filmmakers – John Marshall alum Mark Brecke and Tamara Rosenfeld, and naturalist, author and musician Douglas Wood.
