Please note: Due to a poor weather forecast, this event was been rescheduled for Wednesday, April 8. It was originally scheduled for Tuesday, March 3


On Wednesday, April 8, five members of Class XII of the Indianapolis Bar Association's Bar Leader Series will kick off National Reading Month with a reading celebration in honor of Dr. Seuss at Thomas D. Gregg Elementary in Indianapolis. These attorneys will distribute 200 copies of Dr. Seuss's "Green Eggs and Ham” to students who attend, along with 300 additional books and reading resources. Reading resources and materials provided to the students will explain the importance of adults reading with children, not just to them.

Students will also celebrate the fun of reading through an Dr. Seuss-themed art activity, refreshments, and a visit from the Pacers Fan Van.

Members of the "Reading Team" that have planned the event include Kate Erdel, Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP; Tara Worthley,  Langer & Langer; Commissioner Shannon Logsdon, Marion Superior Court; Jacqueline Pimentel-Gannon, Faegre Baker Daniels LLP; and John Huang, Bose McKinney & Evans LLP. The event is part of the team's Bar Leader Series community service project.

About the Bar Leader Series
The IndyBar Bar Leader Series is a comprehensive leadership development program offered yearly to Indianapolis-area attorneys in their third to tenth year of practice. The program includes monthly sessions on a broad range of topics presented by local legal, political and business leaders as well as the development and execution of a community service team project.

A core aspect of the IndyBar Bar Leader Series is the development and execution of community service team projects by series participants. This facet of the program gives participants a unique opportunity to take community engagement a step farther by putting the knowledge and skills that they’ve learned in the series to practical use for the benefit of the community.
