In addition, many literary events were going on during the evening. Hanover Park Mayor Rodney Craig was a featured guest reader. Several staff members, including Principal Chris Martelli, performed a reader's theater version of the play "The Tale of the Lazy People," adapted from a South American folk tale.

Some fifth- and sixth-grade students performed "Now I Understand," about reading strategies good readers use.

Many students from the Reader's Theater Club were involved in live performances of plays, poetry and monologues. There was also a "live" wax museum featuring students who dressed up as characters and gave monologues about their that person.

It was a well-attended event, with more than 100 families participating.
