Tim Green is excited to announce that he will be paying the town of Port Clinton a visit for a reading of some of his most recent work. A huge thanks goes out to the Friends of Ida Rupp Public Library and the Ida Rupp Public Library itself for inviting Tim Green down.

The reading will be taking place at the Port Clinton Performing Arts Center Monday, September 12 @ 6:30pm. To guarantee a seat, visit the Ida Rupp Public Library website at idarupp.org or give the library at call at 419-732-3212. If you’re unable to register, still feel free to show up! There very well may still be some space. After the reading, Tim Green will be fielding questions about his books, career, and life.

Tim Green is a huge advocate of reading. Even as a first-round NFL draft pick with over an eight-career in professional sports, Green advocates school before sports to his own kids. That’s not to say kids should be skipping out on sports. By all means, an active lifestyle is ideal for everyone and the earlier the start the better. Yet at the same time, we can’t overlook the benefits of reading.

Studies show that children who read 20 minutes a day not only develop more empathetic skill sets, they also perform better in every academic subject. So the ideal arrangement is a mix between getting a physical workout and getting mental workout. That’s why Tim Green helped establish the Play 60/Read 20 campaign with the NFL.

Reading is not only healthy, it’s fun and that’s something that Tim Green tries to convey in all of his books. This all sounds great, but how do you actually get your kids to be excited about reading? This is something that Tim Green has thought about a lot.
