Annual Bright Stars Event

Since 2011, The Reading Center has held large, successful events to draw attention and educate about the issue of dyslexia, as well as the life-changing services of The Reading Center. The event 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. We hosted two dyslexic filmmakers in 2017 – John Marshall alum Mark Brecke and Tamara Rosenfeld.

These events have the potential to draw more than 500 guests and receive tremendous publicity.

This year's event will be held on Sunday, November 4, 2018
