TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Tupelo Reads and the Autism Center of North Mississippi have teamed up for a unique and fun reading project.
The two groups announced the project Monday at the Lee County Library in Tupelo.
The project's featured book is "Ginny Moon" by Benjamin Ludwig.
The book tells the story of an autistic 14-year-old girl who has been adopted.
Lisa Reed is the chairwoman of the Tupelo Reads Project.
She feels the project may help people have a better understanding of how autism affects lives.
Readers are invited to gather and discuss the book at coordinated events that will take place from September 21-25.
The events will include speeches and discussion parties.
The book is currently available to check out at the Lee County Library.
