JOHNSTON, IOWA (April 4, 2019) — Iowa Public Television's Dan Wardell kicks off his thirteenth annual Reading Road Trip on Thursday, June 6. This summer, 29 lucky Iowa communities will receive a visit from Wardell, the popular host of the children's series KIDS Clubhouse Adventures. IPTV partners with librarians statewide to promote summer-reading each year. Wardell will welcome kids and families in communities across the state with an engaging, interactive story-time. As he has for more than a decade, Wardell will encourage kids to go outside and play, use their imaginations, read a good book, and eat healthy foods. More than 146,700 people have attended Wardell's Reading Road Trip in the past 12 years. Once the summer is over, Wardell will continue his Reading Road-Trip story-times throughout the school-year as the show production-schedule permits. Fans can follow Dan Wardell's year-long journey by visiting Iptv.org/Families or on Facebook at KIDS Clubhouse Adventures. The 2019 Reading Road Trip dates and times are subject to change. Schedule updates are immediately posted to Iptv.org. Support for the Reading Road Trip is provided by Blank Children's Hospital, Casey's General Stores, and Iowa Department of Public Health: 5-2-1-0 Healthy Choices Count. Learn more at Iptv.org.
