The Worldreader Ghana’s “MPs DigiRead Train”, after a successful take off with Hon. Nii Lantey-Vanderpuye in the Odododiodioo constituency and Hon. Patrick Yaw Boamah, Member of Parliament for the Okaikwei Central Constituency for the year 2021, is set to begin this year.
This is the first time the ‘Train’ travels outside the capital (Accra)—it is set to be in Bekwai with the First Deputy Speaker and Member of Parliament for the Bekwai Constituency, Hon. Joseph Owusu-Osei.
As characterized with the last ones, this edition will also host the Member of Parliament in reading with students drawn from the constituency and will be followed with a conversation on the theme of the book and its correlation with the lifestyle in the constituency. The session would also create a platform for the children to interact with the Member of Parliament on issues regarding education, library infrastructure in the constituency, reading manners and last but not least, the relevance of reading and reading clubs in schools.

The product by Worldreader which would be made available for the reading session is the BookSmart app, a store of several collections by authors/publishers in Ghana, Africa and the world at large.
The MPs’ DigiRead Train with Hon. Joseph Osei-Owusu will be held at the Methodist Conference Hall, Bekwai on 7 March, 2022 from 10:00 am.
