Iowa Public Television Announces Communities for
Fifth Annual Reading Road Trip Tour
Dan Wardell’s Tour to Reach 65 Iowa Communities in Summer 2011
(Johnston, Iowa) -- Iowa Public Television today announced the network will embark on another ambitious tour of Iowa libraries during the fifth annual summer Reading Road Trip. Dan Wardell, popular host of the IPTV KIDS Clubhouse, will welcome kids and families in communities across Iowa throughout the summer.
Iowa Public Television will partner with libraries to promote summer reading in June and July. Wardell will tell an interactive original story at the libraries, encouraging kids to spend time reading and playing outside, limiting television viewing time.
In addition to the scheduled story times at libraries across Iowa, Wardell will keep an online journal of his fun on the Reading Road Trip with pictures, an interactive map, video, and more. Families can follow Dan online at www.iptv.org/dantastic.
