Annual Read Across America Day is Thursday. What will you be reading? Dr. Suess, Tolstoy, or maybe something in between? The day isn't just about losing oneself in a good book, it's about highlighting efforts to combat illiteracy. On The Sound of Ideas, we'll talk about reading, and learning to read. Later, when you read a food label, you may come away confused. Making sense of sell-by, use-by and best-by dates. Join us.
