Boasting previous readers Grammy-nominated Ky-Mani Marley (son of Reggae icon Bob Marley), Congressman Ed Towns, the one-and-only American actress Tina Louise (known for her role as “Ginger” on Gilligan’s Island) and Danny Simmons (abstract expressionist painter, poet, and creator of HBO’s groundbreaking Def Poetry), W.O.R.D. UP! presents a unique opportunity for lifelong learners to share and enjoy the power of literacy.
