As you well know, it is rare for adult literacy to be in the spotlight as the shame and stigma of poor literacy result in it being covered up.
The TV program Insight, hosted by Jennie Brockie will focus on this issue in the program titled Reading Between the Lines, and the really exciting news is that a Read Write Now student is a guest on the program.
If Katrina looks familiar, you may know her from the video on the home page of the RWN website. Her story was great then, it is even better now! It is an enormous step to take to talk on national TV about having reading difficulties yet she was a wonderful ambassador for the Read Write Now program.
Katrina's tutor (Swan Coordinator) Di was also selected to be part of the audience for the filming. The photo shows Di and Katrina working together.Di & Katrina
